The Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI), a NASA administered and NOAA funded program, designed and built by ITT Geospatial Systems, provides significantly increased capabilities over the current operational GOES Imager (significantly more channels, higher resolution, and faster image repetition rate). The prototype model (PTM) is the qualification instrument for the ABI design and test program. This paper presents the measured performance of the PTM and the status of the ABI flight instrument program.
