First Images from GOES-R

On January 23, NOAA and NASA released the first images from the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) on board GOES-R (GOES-16). Following a successful November launch and outgassing, the first “full disk” image from the ABI was received and processed by the GOES-R program. GOES-R is the most advanced weather satellite ever, with advanced imaging, lightning detection, and space weather observational capabilities never before seen. GOES-R (GOES-16) will be operated by NOAA and provide high spatial, temporal, and multi-channel scanning beginning Spring 2017. Following handover from NASA to NOAA, GOES-16 will be positioned at 75 deg West or 137 deg West (TBD). Unisys Weather will down-link the GOES Rebroadcast (GRB) and have high speed connectivity to the Product Distribution and Access (PDA) at NOAA to provide ABI, lightning mapper (GLM), and advanced derived products to clients. In addition, the Unisys NOAAPort Gateway has been updated to receive the new GRE and GRW NOAAPort channels, which will include sectorized cloud and moisture imagery from the GOES-16 ABI.
