Title: GOESR Overview Greg Mandt System Program Director NHC Visit 28 Oct 2009

GOES-R Overview Greg Mandt System Program
Director NHC Visit 28 Oct 2009
  • Continuation of the U.S. capability required to
    observe, protect and manage the earths resources
    to promote environmental stewardship.
  • Enhance ability to predict and track storms plan
    routes for airlines and ship traffic, identify
    demands for natural resources such as gas and
    water, and assess space weather impacts on
    sensitive electronics such as satellites and
    terrestrial communications.

GOES-R Instruments
  • Improve hurricane track intensity forecast
  • Improve thunderstorm tornado warning lead time
  • Improve aviation flight route planning
  • Improve solar flare warnings for communications
    and navigation
  • Improve power blackout forecasts due to solar
  • Improve energetic particle forecasts

Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) and Geostationary
Lightning Mapper (GLM)

GOES-R System Configuration
Increased Performance
GOES-R provides twice the clarity of the images,
greater than 20 times more information, and
refreshes the data 6X faster than the current
GOES system.
ABI Improved Resolution
Corresponding Simulated GOES Imager Spectral
ABI has improved spatial, spectral and temporal
coverage over earlier imagers
ABI Scan Mode 3 Product Demonstration

Total precipitable water (TPW) and Lifted Index
(LI) are demonstrated in a Mode 3 timeline
Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM)
  • Detects total strikes in cloud, cloud to cloud,
    and cloud to ground
  • Complements todays land based systems that only
    measures cloud to ground (about 15 of the total
  • Increased coverage over oceans and land
  • Currently no ocean coverage, and limited land
    coverage in dead zones

Space Weather Instruments
  • Space Environment Impacts Earth
  • Instruments provide early warning
  • Communications satellites / power grids
  • Voice and data blackouts over poles
  • Communications blackouts
  • Aviation routing
  • Astronaut safety
  • Solar storms can expose astronauts to equivalent
    of 8 chest X-rays

Solar flares travel towards Earth at about
600,000 to 2 million MPH
Unique Payload Services (UPS)
  • UPS Include
  • HRIT--High Rate Information Transmission
  • EMWIN--Emergency Managers Wx Information Network
  • DCS--Data Collection System
  • SARSAT--Search and Rescue
  • GRB -- GOES Rebroadcast
  • Follow on of L-Band GVAR

Weather Testbed- Experimental Forecast and
Warning Programs
  • GOES-R Sensors making great progress
  • ABI Prototype model in test
  • Other sensors heading towards Critical Design
    Review (CDR)
  • Spacecraft development underway
  • Working toward System Design Review
  • GOES-R Ground Segment development under way
  • Major Contractor onboard and working towards
    Integrated Baseline Review and Preliminary
  • Government Algorithm team making Great Progress
    on developing Mature ATBD
  • Starting some initial Cal/Val experiments
  • GOES-R Proving Ground activities ensuring GOES-R

Downlink Frequencies
GOES-R Satellite Mission
  • Input to weather models, forecasts and warnings
  • Fire and smoke products for air quality
    monitoring and forecasting and fire fighting
  • Sea surface temperature monitoring for fisheries
    and climate
  • Winds for aviation
  • Solar imagery for communication satellites,
    utility companies, and astronaut safety
  • Environmental data collectionbuoys, rain gauges…
  • Search and Rescue
  • GOES data shared within the western hemisphere
  • Weather sentinel
  • Hurricanes
  • Severe storms
  • Flash floods

Current GOES Constellation
  • GOES mission requires two on-orbit operational
    satellites and one on-orbit spare
  • GOES-West location in GOES-R series to be 137W
    instead of current 135W
  • Eliminates conflicts with other satellite systems
    in X-band frequency at 135W
  • Note Satellites are labeled with letters on
    the ground and changed to numbers on-orbit
