America’s next generation geostationary imager, the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI), on the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-R series represents a major technological leap in capability for the GOES mission. GOES-R was launched and became GOES-16 in late 2016. The ABI is a state-of-the-art 16-band radiometer, with spectral bands covering the visible, near-infrared and infrared portions of the electro-magnetic spectrum. Many attributes are improved on the ABI from the current GOES imagers, such as those relating to: spectral, spatial, temporal, radiometric and image navigation/registration. From the original concept of 8 spectral bands, to the 16-band radiometer it is today, this presentation will cover the evolution of the ABI from concept to operational use as the GOES-R series replaces the legacy GOES-13/15.
