The 2nd NOAA Workshop on Leveraging AI in Environmental Sciences will be held on 21-24 April 2020 at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) in College Park, MD, USA. Following the success of the 1st Workshop on Leveraging AI, t…
NASA Earth Science leaders are enthusiastic about the potential for principal investigators to take advantage of new low-cost launch options.
A U.S.-European satellite that completed its mission earlier this month has been decommissioned but will remain in orbit for as long as 1,000 years, far beyond existing orbital debris mitigation guidelines.
A retired NOAA geostationary weather satellite is being handed over to the U.S. Air Force to fill in a gap in the service’s forecasting requirements.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration plans to conduct technology demonstrations and pathfinder projects as it prepares to update its Earth observation constellations.
A report released Aug. 1 concluded that a problem with an instrument on the GOES-17 weather satellite is likely caused by some kind of blockage in a system used to cool the instrument.
After years of delays, PlanetiQ says its constellation of commercial weather satellites will be ready to start launching in January thanks to $18.7 million in new capital.
The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission defended the use of spectrum for 5G wireless services while a key senator called for a hearing on potential interference such services could have with space-based weather observations.
Tropical storm and space weather forecasts will improve with the help of observations from radio occultation satellites scheduled for launch June 24 on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officials said June 11.
NOAA’s Satellite and Information Service is requesting nearly $17.3 million in 2020 funding for a series of initiatives to explore the potential contributions of new data partnerships, small satellites and advanced technologies.
The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s future satellite constellations are likely to look far different from the current ones, particularly in low Earth orbit where small satellites of various sizes could gather targeted observations.
To plan future constellations, the agency is conducting the NOAA Satellite Observing System Architecture (NSOSA) study. What has it revealed so far? And how will commercial satellites and data products feed into future architectures?
The Trump administration’s 2020 budget blueprint reiterates plans to allow wireless broadband to share a portion of the radio frequency spectrum currently reserved for geostationary weather satellite observations and terrestrial sensors monitoring flooding, air quality and wildfires.
