New technology for GOES-18 Weather Satellite tested by L3Haris in Rochester

Rochester, New York (WROC) – The latest high-tech satellite series for GOES West is set to launch with the latest technology developed by L3Haris and tested here in Rochester. Once the satellite is grounded, it will provide more information and weather information to many in the Western Hemisphere, including the US.

GOES-T Satellite, to be called GOES-18, was launched by Cape Canaverral, FL on Tuesday, March 1, 2010. This satellite is the No. 3 in a series of 4 advanced geostationary weather satellites, and with the latest advanced ABI technology developed by L3 Harris, meteorologists can monitor and predict local weather events on a daily basis, such as wildfires and hurricanes.

The most exciting thing about the ABI compared to previous generations of devices is that we are giving 3 times the information we cover or 4 times the resolution in 3 times the color so let’s get closer to the features.

Dr. Daniel Gal, LisHaris Technologies, Chief Engineer of Baselline Imaging Systems, has done extensive environmental research to ensure that this satellite is suitable for the pressure and temperature changes here in Rochester.

“We would like to call the El3 Harris facilities in Rochester a truly national brand, one that has been around for a long time and has the most advanced facilities in terms of environmental inspection capabilities …”

If you want to take a full picture of the satellite to see how much information the satellite is producing, you need about 60 4k TVs to display the full picture quality.

“It’s very important to be able to use this technology to better understand people, to make better predictions for you, to help people get out of these dangers, and to be able to work on reality.”

The new satellite data will be available to the public later this year.
