With more channels, upgraded electronics, and at a much lower cost than current imaging sensors, the Exelis electro-optical/infrared environmental sensor will provide an increase in capabilities above existing defense weather satellite
We are proud to be playing an important part in ensuring that Japan now has one of the world's most advanced geostationary weather satellite
since May 2003 to provide visual images for weather forecasts in place of the Himawari 5.
We have geostationary weather satellites
ringing the planet," says Goodman, "but what we need is greater temporal sampling from [higher-resolution] lower-orbiting satellites that pass over a point on Earth much less frequently--two to four times per day--to achieve the needed global coverage.
The Multifunctional Transport Satellite (MTSAT) was commissioned in 2000 to be built by Space Systems/Loral to replace the Japanese weather satellite
Himawari 5 and provide next-generation aeronautical communications and navigational services.
