Weather Satellite Technology

Transforming space-based weather forecasting

At L3Harris, we are relentless in our pursuit to build a more weather-ready nation.

We understand that as forecasting models become more accurate, so will our ability to better prepare for extreme weather, make better decisions, mitigate property damage and save lives.

To continue to improve weather observation and forecasting, we've designed our proven weather sensors and ground systems to support new missions, multiple orbits and the use of small satellites. And we are proud to work in partnership with organizations like NOAA, the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) and the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA).
