OUTLINE Program Status Launch Planning GOES-R Series

GOES On-Orbit Status: 

GOES On-Orbit Status GOES-8 continues to function as the GOES-East operational satellite Functioning on several redundant systems Depletes all fuel reserves by April 2003 Has exceeded operational life by 3 + years GOES-9 removed from operational service in July 1998 Being made available to the Japanese to provide emergency coverage, if necessary GOES-10 has functioned as the GOES-West operational satellite for the last 4 years Difficult to quantify amount of mission life lost due to Solar Array anomaly GOES -11 and GOES –12 are in on-orbit storage mode, ready to replace either GOES-East or West Transition plan being developed to move GOES-12 to GOES-East

GOES-N Series Development/Production Status : 

GOES-N Series Development/Production Status GOES-N Series Spacecraft (Boeing Satellite Systems (BSS), Inc.) Government provided instruments delivered to Spacecraft contractor and successfully integrated on GOES-N Spacecraft GOES-N Spacecraft system level testing underway GOES-N Series Spacecraft Support Ground System (SSGS) delivered to NOAA’s SOCC Successfully completed two command/TLM/Data End-to-End testing between Spacecraft and NOAA’s SOCC GOES-N Spacecraft on schedule to support January 2004 launch readiness The GOES-O Bus and Payload Modules Completed

GOES-N Series Instruments Status: 

GOES-N Series Instruments Status GOES-N Series Imagers and Sounders (ITT) The GOES-N (S/N08) Imager and Sounder mechanically/electrically integrated onto the GOES-N bus The GOES-O (S/N09) Imager and Sounder mechanically integrated on to the GOES-O bus GOES-P (S/N10) Imager and Sounder are in temporary storage at ITT. Preliminary integration of S/N 11 Imager and Sounder started, leading to the ship dates of June 14, 2003 for the Imager and July 31, 2003 for the Sounder.

GOES-N Spacecraft Instrument Testing:
