Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. and Raytheon Intelligence & Space will begin developing technologies for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s next generation of weather satellites under contracts announced May 17.
With Arctic aviation and maritime activity on the rise, Europe and Canada are taking the lead in developing weather satellites to gather global data and improve observation of Earth’s northernmost latitudes.
The U.S. Space Force selected General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems and Orion Space Solutions to each develop and launch demonstration satellites for weather imaging and cloud characterization.
An imaging sensor developed by EO Vista for U.S. Space Force weather satellites passed a key design review, the company announced Jan. 31.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will move its next Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) into position over the Western United States soon after launch to speed up data delivery to the National Weather Service.
Raytheon Technologies was awarded a $67 million contract to build a weather satellite prototype for the U.S. Space Force.
Tomorrow.io won a $19.3 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to support deployment of a constellation of approximately 32 radar-equipped weather satellites.
NASA awarded contracts to Ball Aerospace & Technologies and L3Harris Technologies to study instruments for Geostationary and Extended Observations (GeoXO), the agency’s next generation of geostationary satellites.
The EWS program office extended the competition to spring 2022, said Col. Brian Denaro, program executive officer for space development at the Space Systems Command
Op-ed | The costs of extreme weather and climate are soaring. Commercial space data should be a bigger part of the solution
There is no one magic bullet to improving forecasts and reining in the costs of extreme weather and climate. To truly tap into the powerful innovation of the private sector, we must think beyond a few targeted, yet piecemeal commercial data buys.
It’s a good thing the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has plenty of time to prepare for its next generation of polar-orbiting weather satellites — because the changes the agency is contemplating are dramatic.
The U.S. government is poised to make large investments in environmental monitoring satellites but these efforts are not well coordinated, says a new report by the Aerospace Corp.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration plans to do more than improve forecasts with its next generation of geostationary weather satellites.
Improvements in satellite weather data collection and analysis are helping financial investors place better bets on the companies they gamble on.
The long-term solution to permanently replacing DMSP cannot be an experiment. Our warfighters need a long-term, high-fidelity weather information solution, which is the most alarming disadvantage to cubesat constellations.
L3Harris Technologies and Raytheon Intelligence & Space won NASA contracts to carry forward studies of next-generation imagers for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Geostationary and Extended Orbits satellites.
CNAS senior fellow Sarah Mineiro warns U.S. service members are at risk of losing the most up-to-date knowledge of weather conditions.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin directed the Pentagon to develop plans to prepare for the impact of climate change. The guidance could shape investments in satellites for weather monitoring.
ClimaCell, a weather data company, announced plans Feb. 24 to launch dozens of radar satellites to improve forecasts.
After evaluating priorities for NOAA satellites to follow the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite R Series satellites (GOES-R) in the 2030 to 2050 timeframe, NOAA’s National Satellite, Data and Information Service is recommending flying three satellites over the United States.
