satellite airforceNASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have received a Harris Corp.-built system to test command and control procedures of a weather satellite Lockheed Martin is building for NOAA.

Operators will prepare ground-based satellite command and control operations and processes two years ahead of the scheduled launch of the first GOES-R satellite, Harris said Monday.

Romy Olaisen, vice president of civil programs at Harris Government Communications Systems, said the company built the system to help NOAA satellite operators use new command and control interfaces and Harris’ OS/COMET tool suite to manage the satellites with command and control interfaces.

The Harris system contains hardware, software, a graphical user interface, the OS/COMET telemetry and other tools for mission operations.

Harris is the prime contractor and systems integrator for the ground segment of the GOES-R constellation, which weather authorities will use to forecast hurricanes and other severe weather.
