This paper outlines the requirements and methodologies for development of the NOAA/NASA GOES-R Hyperspectral Environmental Suite (HES) instrument. The HES instrument is currently being developed within the framework of the GOES Program to fulfill the future needs and requirements of the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS). As an integral component of the GOES-R series satellites, HES will provide measurements of the traditional temperature and water vapor vertical profiles with higher accuracy and vertical resolution and may provide a back-up imaging mode. An overview of the HES requirements are presented at the GOES-R mission level, spacecraft level and instrument level with an overview of the GOES-R project methodologies to achieve the advanced functional objectives of the GOES Program partnership.
