5th GOES Users' Conference


Mission Availability Improvements for GOES-R

Larry E. Urner, Northrop Grumman, Redondo Beach, CA; and J. Castellon, M. Hanson, and S. Sawyer

The GOES-R series of satellites will offer significantly more active mission data collection time for the sensor instruments than either the GOES-I or GOES-N series of satellites. This is due to a combination of available power during eclipse, stability through maneuvers, and minimized interference between the various instruments. This poster will advise users of what they can expect for data collection continuity and estimated outage times from GOES-R vs. GOES I-M and N-P from the ABI, GLM, SIS, SUVI, EXIS, and magnetometer instruments.
