Abstract

NEWS AN D Notes NOAA-16 Replaces Older Environmental two polar-orbiting satellites and GOES-8 and GOES- Satellite 10 are the two geostationary satellites. NOAA also operates satellites in the Defense Meteorological Sat- The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminis- ellite Program. tration (NOAA) announced that the environmental NOA A and the National Aeronautics and Space satellite NOAA-16, featuring improved imaging and Administration (NASA) work together to develop and sounding capabilities, replaced NOAA-14 on 20 March launch NOAA's environmental satellites. NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, NOAA-16, which successfully completed engineer- is responsible for the construction, integration, and ing and instrument calibration, is a Polar-Orbiting verification testing of the satellite, instruments, and Operational Environmental Satellite (POES). The sec- ond in a series of five POES satellites, it was launched ground equipment. NASA also arranges launch of the 21 September 2000, and will operate over the next 10 satellites with the U.S. Air Force. years .
