The first satellite in the NOAA Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite R-Series, now GOES-16, launched in November 2016. GOES-16 ABI provides enhanced spectral, temporal, and spatial information and with deployment of a new system with new capabilities, user readiness becomes an increasingly important activity. The GOES-R Product Readiness and Operations (PRO) team is tasked to work with our partners at the National Weather Service and within NESDIS to ensure products (both Level 1 and Level 2) are ready for operations and the user community is ready and are receiving and disseminating the various products to serve their needs and requirements.

With the launch of GOES-16, the GOES-R PRO team worked with our algorithm developers to develop comprehensive plans for testing during Post Launch Product Testing (PLPT) for Level 2 products. During this presentation, we will provide a high-level overview of the status of the PLPT for L2+ algorithms along with an update on L2+ system performance.
