GOES-U Satellite Goes to Space in June | Space

The GOES Satellite family is getting bigger. GOES-U is the fourth and final of NOAA’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) to be launched. It follows GOES R, S, and T, on a mission that began in 2016.   

When in orbit more than 22 thousand miles above Earth, the satellite will be renamed GOES-19 and will replace the GOES-16 satellite currently in orbit over the eastern half of the United States. GOES-16 will remain a backup satellite.  Together with GOES-18 over the western U.S., the two satellites will cover half the planet: from the west coast of Africa to New Zealand. They will provide real-time updates of weather and atmospheric conditions in as little as 30 seconds.

Technology onboard GOES-U will gather data for hurricane track and intensity forecasts, early warning of severe storms, fire detection, sea surface conditions and much more. It has the same six instruments as the previous four GOES satellites but one new instrument too. GOES-U is equipped with the first operational compact coronagraph to help detect space weather and aid in early warnings for Earth impacts.  

  1. Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI):  Primary on-board instrument for monitoring Earth’s weather, ocean, and environment.  
  1. Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM): operational lightning mapper to help with lightning detection and intensification of storms  
  1. X-ray Irradiance…
