Recommendation: To improve NOAA's ability to maintain geostationary
satellites continuity and improve efforts to involve key GOES data users, the Secretary of Commerce should direct the NOAA Administrator to establish processes for satellite data requirements definition and prioritization to include documented input from external federal agencies that rely on GOES data on future satellite acquisitions.
Eventual success of the program would put the country into the elite club of five -- the United States, Russia, the European Space Agency, Japan and China -- that have achieved geostationary

As per the contract, Harris will be responsible to provide its WxConnect products that NOAA will be utilising for receiving and processing satellite weather observations from the NOAA Geostationary
Operational Environment Satellite R-Series Rebroadcast and Japanese HimawariCast services.
The sensor will fly on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's next-generation Geostationary
Operational Environmental Satellite missions, known as the GOES-R Series.
In addition to four satellites in the series (R, S, T and U), Lockheed Martin is also designing and building the Solar Ultraviolet Imager (SUVI) and the Geostationary
Lightning Mapper (GLM) instruments that will each fly aboard each of the spacecraft.
satellites orbit at the same rate as the Earth's rotation, essentially remaining above the same location throughout their lifetimes.
a consortium which operates the lone commercial geostationary
satellite over the United States, has dragged its feet, Noreen said.
Because NOAA-I flies at much lower altitudes than geostationary
satellites, which track a single spot on the Earth, this craft's precision temperature sounder can record more accurate temperatures at a variety of depths in the atmosphere.
The explosion of video applications and the consequent need of more bandwidth to distribute it, spurs the growth of the commercial geostationary
satellite transponder markets in North America.
The present orbit of the satellite will be raised to Geostationary
Orbit of about 36,000 km altitude through three orbit raising manoeuvres by the firing of GSAT-16's Liquid Apogee Motor (LAM) Engine.
LAS VEGAS, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GeoMetWatch (GMW) announced that it has entered into an agreement with Exelis, a top-tier diversified global aerospace company that builds advanced weather satellite sensors, to design a geostationary
