Powerful New Satellite Will Track Extreme Weather Over the Eastern Pacific

GOES-S will provide vastly improved monitoring of storms, wildfires, and volcanic ash plums over the Pacific Ocean and the western United States.

The GOES-S satellite will take the place of NOAA's current GOES-West spacecraft to monitor the western US. Its view will extend all the way to New Zealand, as well. | Lockheed Martin
