The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite R-Series (GOES-R) is the next generation of geostationary satellites bringing forth major advancements in satellite capabilities. The GOES-R baseline products provide many benefits to the weather, water and space user community by taking advantage of its new instruments and ground system that provide imager data five times faster with four times the spatial resolution and three times as many spectral bands than does legacy GOES. The first satellite in the GOES-R Series was launched November 19, 2016 (now GOES-16) and is undergoing in-orbit testing for one year, prior to replacing the current GOES-East satellite. The GOES-16 continuity, enhanced, and wholly new revolutionary data products will be widely disseminated throughout the user community when the satellite is declared operational in December 2017. This talk will provide updates on the status of GOES-16 baseline products, new applications and decision aids, algorithm enhancements, blended products, and legacy GOES capabilities that are not addressed in the GOES-R baseline.
