Instruments Overview
There are three classifications of GOES-R instruments:

Nadir-pointing
Earth-pointed “business end” of GOES
Highly stable, precision pointed platform
Dynamically isolated from the rest of the spacecraft
Supports operation of the ABI and GLM

Solar-pointing
Utilizes a Sun Pointing Platform (SPP) housed on the solar array yoke
The SPP provides a stable platform that tracks the seasonal and daily movement of the sun relative to the spacecraft
Supports operation of the ABI, GLM, and Unique Payload Services (UPS)

In-Situ
SEISS and the Magnetometer provide localized measurements of particles and fields in geosynchronous orbit
Accommodation challenges include:
  - A wide variance in Field-of-View (FOV) requirements for the SEISS sensors
  - A boom to provide relative magnetic isolation for the Magnetometer
