The diversity of the user community is reflected in the wide variety and applications of GOES-R series data and products.
Larger, institutional users can exploit the increases in spectral, temporal, and spatial resolution and assimilate radiances for use in prediction models, increasing the timeliness and accuracy of forecast products.GOES-R series data will be used in real time for critical life and property forecasting and warning applications primarily by the National Weather Service. These users will be able to monitor the rapid development and interaction of severe storms.
Smaller public and private sector users will be able to obtain GOES-R series data through their own Earth stations, or through terrestrial network distribution.
GOES-R series data products will be available using new product distribution and access technologies. The graphic below illustrates the GOES-R series system architecture showing the Product Distribution and Unique Payload Services that are detailed from the links in the upper right of this page.
