Inter-sensor calibration between telescopes of multitelescope instrumentation provides an important fundamental capability for GOES Magnetospheric particle detectors. In the past, this activity has been conducted as part of Post-Launch Testing and intermittently throughout the instrument lifetime. The Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR)'s Cal/Val Team will improve upon this by creating software which will perform the necessary comparisons on a daily basis, and making the results for the entire mission available to the public through a Web interface. This study presents a simulation of the data that users will have access to, based on results for 2 months of GOES-13 MAGED data using an algorithm being prototyped at STAR. It also gives a high-level explanation of the analysis and selection process employed by the algorithm.
