The Nimbus Technology satellite program was initiated by NASA in the early 1960's to develop an observational system capable of meeting the research and development needs of Earth scientists.
Nimbus were second-generation meteorological research-and-development satellites that was designed to serve as a stabilised, earth-oriented platform for the testing of advanced meteorological sensor systems and for collecting meteorological data.
Nimbus, depending on the experiments carried, was 3.04 to 3.7 m tall, 1.52 m in diameter at the base, and 3 to 3.96 m across with solar paddles extended.

The Nimbus program, approved in 1959 as NASA's second-generation meteorology satellite program, was operationally successfully concluded in 1978 with the launch of the last of seven polar-orbiting satellites.
Nimbus was flown not as an operational satellite but as an advanced research satellite on which new sensing instruments and data-gathering techniques were tested.
Nimbus 7 (October 24, 1978) also was called the "Air Pollution and Oceanographic Observing Satellite." In addition to mapping upper atmospheric characteristics, this last satellite of the series collected extensive data over the planet's oceans, extended scientists' solar and earth radiation data base, and monitored man-made and natural pollutants.

Given the success of the TIROS program, the primary objective of the NIMBUS program was to develop a satellite system capable of meeting the needs of the world's atmospheric science research community.
The NIMBUS system originally designed as a replacement for TIROS, became the means to test new remote sensing techniques as well as a means to sense the radiative properties of the earth's land masses, oceans and the atmosphere.
Other goals of the program included the development of new earth surface mapping techniques, new ground data processing techniques, and to develop the capability to sense atmospheric variables in the vertical (soundings).

Nimbus is a NASA/GSFC meteorological research-and-development satellite program (parallel to the operational TIROS program) which started in 1963 with the prime objective to test new instrument concepts (introduction of sensor technology), a secondary objective was to provide atmospheric data for improved weather forecasts.
Eventually, the series grew more into a major Earth sciences program (study of oceans, land surfaces and atmosphere) with the availability of better sensing instrumentation.
