29 August 2005 GOES-R product and algorithm development
Author Affiliations +
With the launch of GOES-R, the next generation of geostationary environmental monitoring satellites will have gone from the drawing board to on-orbit operations. New products will flow through a processing system that took years to develop and perfect. Around 2012, users will finally get their first taste of the latest remote environmental monitoring products from geostationary orbit. To achieve this capability and make the new environmental monitoring system a success, algorithmic products will have to be developed, tested and then transitioned into an operational environment. This article addresses planned changes in the algorithm development process for GOES-R that will lead to a successful implementation of this new satellite and processing system. Notional concepts will be used to describe potential GOESR algorithm development processes, their benefits and the efficiencies to be gained from those changes. While the concepts described indicate a strategy, the final science into operations concepts will continue to evolve until the contract for building the system is awarded to a commercial vendor.
