      The GOES-R satellite series consists of GOES-R, GOES-S, GOES-T and GOES-U. This series is more advanced than the current GOES fleet in that the satellites can scan the Earth five times faster, at four times the image resolution, with triple the number of channels for more accurate, reliable weather forecasts and severe weather outlooks.   Latest weather satellite will improve forecasts for western U.S., Alaska, Hawaii.

      The GOES-R constellation is being heralded as a significant step forward in NOAA’s ability to track weather systems, as well as an answer to an impending gap in satellite coverage. Progress on. GOES was launched in March and forms a key part of an $11 billion project to revolutionize American weather and environmental forecasting abilities, along with another satellite, GOES .

The fourth-generation satellites, the GOES-R series, are being built by Lockheed Martin using the A satellite GOES-R series is a four-satellite program (GOES-R, -S, -T and -U) that will extend the availability of the operational GOES satellite system through The first satellite of the series, the eponymous GOES-R, was launched on 19 November   Many people with an RTL-SDR have had fun receiving NOAA and METEOR low earth orbit (LEO) weather satellite images.

However, a step up in difficulty is to try and receive the geostationary orbit (GEO) weather satellites like GOES. These satellites are locked to a fixed position in the sky meaning there is no need to do tracking, however since they are much.

From weather forecasting to communicating with the South Pole, GOES-3 has cemented its place in the history books as “One of the Oldest Continuously Operating Spacecraft in History”.

The GOES-3 satellite made history on Jwhen it became NOAA’s third Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) placed in orbit.

Back in October/November of last year Lucas Teske showed us how to receive weather satellite images from the GOES line of geostationary satellites with an Airspy SDR (and possibly an RTL-SDR too), dish antenna and the decoding software that he created.

On Novem the next generation GOES 16 (aka GOES-R) satellite was launched by NASA. GOES 16 is a little different to the older GOES. The GOES-R Series provides advanced imagery and atmospheric measurements of Earth’s weather, oceans and environment, real-time mapping of total lightning activity, and improved monitoring of solar activity and space weather.

The GOES-R Series maintains the two-satellite operational system implemented by the previous GOES satellites. The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-R Series (GOES-R), the latest generation of geostationary weather satellites, significantly improves the detection and observation of environmental phenomena, resulting in improved public safety, more accurate forecasts, better protection of property, and greater assurance on our nation’s economic health and prosperity.
