NASA’s Hurricane Microsatellite Fleet is Launching SoonNASA researchers are preparing for the Dec. 12 dispatch of the Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS), a committed armada of tempest viewing microsatellites that will track storm development over Earth’s seas. Organization specialists examined the new mission in a news meeting today (Nov. 10). 

CYGNSS will be an octet of 64-lb. (29-kg) microsatellites, each marginally bigger than a lightweight bag, set in Earth circle to screen creating sea tempests and tropical typhoons. While a solitary circling satellite could just give reports on a given area at regular intervals, the eight together will have the capacity to investigate creating storms at regular intervals as they pass overhead. The framework is minimal effort, coming in at $162 million to fabricate and run. 

“We’re doing genuine science with a rocket that can truly sit around your work area,” John Scherrer, CYGNSS’ extend administrator at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, said at the instructions. “Not only one of them, but rather eight — they’ll be circling in the tropics where the sea tempests are, and at regular intervals they’ll be making another estimation.”
