Accurate data and weather forecasts play an important role in our every day lives—helping us schedule activities, safeguard property and resources, and manage businesses and economies. Increasingly, the same is true for environmental monitoring, which enables us to plan for the impacts of seasonal weather and climate.
At Harris, we develop cutting-edge technology to help measure, understand, and monitor weather and climate to support decision making for governmental agencies, scientists, businesses, and policy makers. Our scientists and engineers design creative technologies that capture, analyze, and visualize data from every altitude to improve understanding of our planet and atmosphere.
In space, the world’s most advanced environmental satellite systems rely on Harris imagers and sounders to deliver environmental data back to Earth at unprecedented resolutions and speeds. On the ground, our weather ground systems, capable of handling multiple missions simultaneously across a common architecture, enable users to realize the full benefits of the new imaging technology. Our environmental monitoring instruments help provide a complete picture of our planet from space, air, and ground.
