GOES-R Proving Ground Demonstrations
The GOES-R Proving Ground is where proxy and simulated GOES-R products are tested, evaluated, and integrated into operations before launch to maximize user readiness for GOES-R capabilities. The initial Proving Ground focus is on High Impact Weather and warning related products requested by the National Weather Service (NWS). Click on the links below to explore the GOES-R Proving Ground demonstrations.
