Enterprise Ground Systems

Each mission benefits from the ability to leverage a range of sources and translate this into mission-specific intelligence for both civil and military missions. An enterprise ground system provides the optimal framework for the future, and Harris designed, delivered, and tested the GOES-R ground system using this concept.

Harris solutions employ common algorithms and shared computing resources, within a comprehensive service oriented architecture to affordably access, process, and distribute data and products from a variety of sensor data sources, including dedicated satellites, hosted payloads, ancillary data, mesonets, and more.

Building a Unified Solution

SYSTEMS CONSOLIDATION

Minimizes total cost of ownership of the complete systems landscape by removing stovepipes and replacing them with an integrated and unified, flexible system

OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY

Applies scalable/extensible service-oriented architecture to affordably access, process, and distribute data and products from any applicable environmental satellite

OPERATIONAL READINESS

Decreases the time to availability when introducing new technologies and launching new services by deploying agile processes and systems; easily adaptable to changing requirements

ACCELERATION OF NEW CAPABILITIES

Eliminates redundant acquisitions, utilizes a common baseline, and allows business processes to be streamlined

SECURITY

Harris security design methodology ensures that our customers' systems will not suffer denial-of-service attacks and eliminates the downtime of operations due to hackers with malicious intents.

Civil Missions

NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION'S (NOAA'S) GEOSTATIONARY OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL SATELLITE (GOES-R)

Harris has completed site integration of the Ground System for NOAA's new generation GOES-R satellite in preparation for launch in March 2016. The GOES satellites are the primary tools used for the detection and tracking of hurricanes and other severe weather in the continental U.S. and western hemisphere. Harris' GOES-R technology will process and deliver 40 times more data and 6 times more often than the current GOES system.

WEATHER PRODUCTS GENERATED AT SITE
Radiance Product

Advanced Baseline Imager Radiance product produced on GOES-R Ground Segment from government test data

Cloud and Moisture Imagery

Cloud and Moisture Imagery (CMI) produced from Radiance products for delivery to AWIPS

Military Missions

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD) DEFENSE METEOROLOGICAL SATELLITE PROGRAM (DMSP)

For decades, Harris systems and people have been at the heart of this key polar weather satellite, serving the U.S. DoD.  Harris capabilities include operations, satellite telemetry and command, gateway antennas, and associated user systems.

The DMSP system offers a foundation for the future. Harris’ experience, partnerships, and flexible system designs build upon that foundation, allowing for increased operational efficiency while maintaining rigorous security. Harris is prepared for the movement to disaggregated system-of-systems approaches – see more about our HoPS involvement.
