The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s latest generation of weather satellites, known as the GOES-R Series and operated in conjunction with NASA, is the nation’s most advanced fleet of geostationary weather satellites. The GOES-R Series provides advanced imagery and atmospheric measurements of Earth’s weather, oceans and environment, real-time mapping of total lightning activity, and improved monitoring of solar activity and space weather.
Solace technology enables the real-time distribution of mission critical data as part of the GOES-R program. L3Harris Corporation deployed Solace PubSub+ as the low latency, high availability messaging backbone for the ground system that disseminates information from the GOES-R satellites to agencies and organizations that use it to track, predict and report on weather conditions around the world.
Solace has improved messaging throughput and latency while providing a fault tolerant platform. Additionally, Solace’s technology offered the easy deployment and low TCO of a purpose-built hardware appliance.
