18 October 1996 Advanced imager concept for GOES-R
Author Affiliations +
The results of a conceptual design study of an advanced Imager for GOES-R is presented. Tentative performance requirements are established from NOAA operational and science communities. A performance scaling law is developed which provides a quantitative measure of sensor capabilities and insight into the key design parameter tradeoffs. The basic design concept is described and estimates for sensitivity and resolution are given.
