MELBOURNE, Fla. (L3 Harris Technologies PR) — L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) has been selected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to conduct four studies which will inform the agency’s next generation of Earth observation satellite architecture. The studies assess mission concepts, spacecraft and instruments.

“For more than 50 years, L3Harris has designed, built and delivered the critical space sensors which monitor severe weather and have improved the accuracy of two- to seven-day forecasts,” said Ed Zoiss, President, Space and Airborne Systems, L3Harris. “With these studies, we continue bringing a fresh and innovative approach to help NOAA’s weather satellite constellation continue revolutionizing weather forecasting.”

L3Harris is the industry-leading supplier of operational weather sensors flown on U.S. and international spacecraft — developing NOAA’s Advanced Baseline Imager for the GOES-R satellite series, Cross Track Infrared Sounder for the Joint Polar Satellite System, Japan’s Advanced Himawari Imagers, and South Korea’s Advanced Meteorological Instrument. The company’s environmental monitoring instruments help provide a complete picture of our planet from space, air, and ground.
