GOES-T L3Harris Activation

Feb 24, 2022 - Mar 03, 2022 Space Shuttle Atlantis


From February 24 - March 3, stop by the bottom floor of Space Shuttle Atlantis® to learn more about L3Harris’ vital role in NOAA’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-T satellite launch through an interactive experience.

GOES-T, launching this March from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, will provide advanced imagery and atmospheric measurements of Earth’s weather, oceans and environment in the Western Hemisphere. 

L3Harris is an agile global aerospace and defense technology innovator, delivering end-to-end solutions that meet customers’ mission-critical needs. L3Harris provides the primary payload instrument for the GOES-R Series, the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI). ABI enables the ability for faster and more accurate forecasts, improved hazardous weather tracking, and increased capabilities to study and monitor climate change.   



Viewing opportunities from the visitor complex are available for GOES-T, included with daily admission. Learn more below:
