NOAA’s GOES-T is scheduled to launch on March 1, 2022, from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. GOES-T is the third satellite in the GOES-R Series, the Western Hemisphere’s most advanced weather-observing and environmental-monitoring system.
As our sentinels in the sky, NOAA’s GOES satellites help protect the one billion people who live and work in the Americas. Data from GOES-T will help meteorologists see the big picture as well as read the fine print, providing critical real-time information before, during and after severe weather and disasters strike.
GOES-T will provide advanced imagery and atmospheric measurements, real-time mapping of lightning activity, and monitoring of space weather.
