HIMAWARI 9 is a Japanese geostationary satellite fitted with a modernized camera to collect more timely images of typhoons and severe weather. The satellite, built by Mitsubishi Electric Corp. and owned by the Japan Meteorological Agency, will cover the Japanese islands and a swath of the Asia-Pacific stretching from India in the West, to Australia in the South, and to Hawaii in the East. HIMAWARI 8 and HIMAWARI 9 replace the MTSAT 1R and MTSAT 2 observatories used by Japanese forecasters since their launches in 2005 and 2006. The new Himawari satellites carry U.S.-built advanced imagers made by Harris Corp. Japanese officials plan to keep HIMAWARI 9 in standby mode to back up Himawari 8 until least 2022.
