News- Harris Corporation Completes Review for Satellite Ground Contract

Harris Corporation announced the successful completion of the first portion of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) program. The NOAA program is designed to provide weather images to over 10, 000 users and process data 40 times faster than what is presently possible.

The review of the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite- Series R (GOES-R) Ground Segment program was completed in Florida. The review satisfied that the system’s performance and functional requirements met the specified mission of the GOES-R. The GOES-R program covers the processing and receiving of satellite data, distribution and command and control functions of the satellites. The 10-year contract is worth a potential $736 million. Ray Thorpe, VP of the GOES-R program said “This milestone establishes a common understanding of all of the requirements the GOES-R ground segment must meet during development, deployment and operation. The successful completion of this review brings us one step closer to fielding a weather prediction system that will give forecasters an unprecedented edge when dealing with dangerous weather conditions.”
