On September 26, 2016, the Hampton University Center for Atmospheric Research and Education (HU-CARE) program installed a direct broadcast antenna on top of the Hampton Harbour Center in downtown Hampton, VA. Funded by a $5 million award from NASA, this antenna enables scientists to instantly predict severe weather within a 2,000 mile radius of Hampton Roads, as well as provide HU student researchers access to advanced satellite data


At Hampton University groundbreaking research is underway in labs across campus, focused on producing technology and innovation that will help drive tomorrow's discoveries. With advancing programs in the sciences, engineering, health, computing, architecture, the community and related areas, Hampton University is committed to educating future leaders.
