January 12, 2015:  What exactly goes into building a new weather satellite? A new animated video explains how GOES-R was developed and how new science and technology on the GOES-R series satellites will provide significant advancements in the observation of severe weather.  So You Want To Build a Weather Satellite
   
January 12, 2015:  All six instruments that will fly on the NOAA’s Geostationary Operational Satellite – R (GOES-R) satellite have now completed integration onto the spacecraft. Together, these instruments will offer significant improvements for the observation of both terrestrial weather and space weather that impact life on Earth. The program is now focusing on the environmental testing phase, the next step for the GOES-R satellite, to ensure it is prepared to withstand the rigors of launch and operation in the extreme environment of space.  Feature Story
   
January 5, 2015:  News from #AMS2015: NOAA’s Administrator Dr. Kathryn Sullivan announced that the GOES-R satellite is scheduled for launch in March 2016 and will continue observations during its extended post-launch testing through the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season and transition immediately into operations afterward (around March 2017). This will make the enhanced capabilities of GOES-R available earlier, providing benefits such as better life-saving decision support services for tornadoes, wind, flash flooding, tropical cyclones and volcanic ash, as well as improved fire weather remote sensing and lightning detection.
