Paper Abstract

Meteosat Second Generation is the planned successor to the current ESA/Eumetsat program of meteorological satellites known as Meteosat Operational. This paper reviews the background to Meteosat Second Generation, covering the satellite and payload studies conducted since 1984 on several types of missions and satellites, and it reviews the requirements for the mission as it is now defined with a spin stabilized platform.
