Luxel filters head to space – After GOES-T launches, it will be renamed GOES-18 once it reaches geostationary orbit. GOES-18 will work in tandem with GOES-16, NOAA’s operational GOES East satellite to monitor weather systems and hazards over more than half the globe. The satellite will also assist other missions in monitoring space weather. Our 150nm thick Aluminum and 200nm thick Zirconium bandpass filters on SUVI enable observations of the sun such as solar storms to protect satellites, power grids, and other infrastructure.
