Below is a list of New Millennium Program (NMP) series satellites, including launch dates and links to information on the satellites. If readers know of additional information, please contact the authors using the e-mail addresses at the bottom of this page.

Since all NMP-series satellites have other names as well, launch covers and other postal items for these satellites are found under those other names. Unlike other NASA series, NMP missions are not numbered. The NMP program was canceled in 2008.
