BARSC member Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has been selected by Ki Ho Military Acquisition Consulting Inc. (KIHOMAC) to provide a system to deliver real-time satellite data from NOAA’s newest Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES-16) that will support critical launch decisions at Cape Canaveral, Florida.

“Weather conditions have an enormous impact on go/no-go launch decisions from Cape Canaveral,” said Eric Webster, vice president and general manager, Harris Environmental Solutions. “We are proud to work with the Air Force to provide information on lightning, high winds and other severe weather, which can damage space vehicles and their payloads, and put launch personnel at risk.
