The TIROS-N series was the third generation of NOAA's low earth orbit meteorological satellites. Later spacecraft wear called NOAA. These satellites were built by RCA Astro based on the military DMSP-5D1 series of satellites. NOAA-6  → TIROS-N satellite is the first of the TIROS-N series. It is a weather satellite launched in Octo It was designed to become operational in 2 n type: weather. The TIROS-N satellite is scheduled for launch in mid The third generation environmental satellite will carry instruments that can provide data to meet state requirements in support of both day-to-day environmental monitoring and global research programs. 1 ITOS-type/NOAA: TIROS-M (ITOS-1), and NOAA-1 — NOAA 2 TIROS-N-type/NOAA: TIROS-N and NOAA-6 — NOAA-7, and NOAA 3 ATN-type/NOAA: NOAA-8 — NOAA, except NOAA 4 POES: Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellite, a generic name for NOAA satellites. 5 The depiction of an ATN-type NOAA satellite with the Space Shuttle and its manipulator arm is not correct, since those .

NOAA-E through NOAA-N were called the TIROS ATN series (Advanced TIROS N). NOAA-D was launched out of sequence and later became NOAA The spacecraft were 3-axis stabilized, nadir pointing with control to deg using reaction wheels.
