Description
 
The GOES-R series is a set of four satellites intended to replace existing weather satellites that will likely reach the end of their useful lives in about 2015. The Nat. Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin. (NOAA) estimates the series to cost $10.9 billion through 2036. Because the transition to the series is critical to the nationńˇ╗s ability to maintain the continuity of data required for weather forecasting, this report reviewed NOAAńˇ╗s management of the GOES-R program.Specifically, the report (1) assesses NOAAńˇ╗s progress in developing the GOES-R satellite program; (2) evaluates whether the agency has a reliable schedule for executing the program; and (3) determines whether the program is applying best practices in managing and mitigating its risks. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
