Significant progress has been made in the development and deployment of several components of the product generation and distribution elements of the ground system in preparation for the launch of the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-R (GOES-R) series of weather satellites. Simulated test data from all the six GOES-R sensors are being processed by the system to test and verify performance of the fielded system. Early results show that the system development is on track to meet functional and performance requirements to process science data. Comparison of science products generated by the ground system from simulated data with those generated by the algorithm developers show close agreement among data sets which demonstrates that the algorithms are implemented correctly. Successful delivery of products to AWIPS and the Product Distribution and Access (PDA) system from the core system demonstrate that the external interfaces are working.
