GOES-East Satellite Imagery Update

On Thursday, December 14th, NOAA has turned off the current GOES-13 (East) weather satellite and replaced it with the more advanced GOES-16 (GOES-R) satellite. Users will see a gap in the satellite imagery as Unisys works to release an update to the visualization software used to make the satellite images and loops. We hope to have that online by Friday, December 15th.

We are aware that the new GOES-16 imagery has issues with plotting on the sat/sfc map, as well as the composites of East/West on some of the hemispheric images (currently they show GOES-16 only, and do not cover Alaska and most of the Pacific due to GOES-16′s location). We are working to resolve the issue.

NOAA GOES-13 Resumes as GOES-East on June 10, 2013

NOAA has switched GOES-East operations back to GOES-13 at 15:45 UTC on June 10, 2013. Users of Unisys NOAAPort receive systems and users of satellite data from WeatherMax will see the updated imagery. For additional information, please refer to NOAA’s Satellite Products and Services Division.

NOAA to return to GOES-13 as GOES-East on June 6, 2013

NOAA satellite engineers have successfully restored GOES-13 and will bring back GOES-13 as the operational GOES-East satellite on Thursday, June 6, 2013 at approximately 1545 UTC. GOES-14, located over 105W, has been acting as GOES-East since a significant navigation anomaly was suffered by GOES-13 on May 22.

NOAA GOES-East (GOES-13) Anomaly

NOAA is experiencing a significant anomaly with the GOES-East (GOES-13) imager and sounder. Sounder imagery stopped as of 9/23 1126 UTC, imager stopped as of 9/23 2122 UTC. GOES-West (GOES-15) has been placed in 30-minute Full Disk mode to cover the outage. In addition, NOAA is transmitting GOES-West (GOES-15) GVAR through the GOES-East (GOES-13) downlink. Unisys NOAAPORT and satellite data customers will see data from GOES-West until further notice. Effects include reduced coverage of the Atlantic Ocean and colder cloud tops off of the Eastern US (due to low scanning angle from GOES-West).
