Paper Abstract

The next-generation GOES-R (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite) HES (Hyperspectral Environmental Suite) Sounder will be either a grating or interferometer design. The HES will be able to provide hourly atmospheric soundings with spatial resolutions of 5 ~ 10 km with higher accuracy than the current geostationary sounder. A number of GOES-R products will be made from the HES data, this information will help both in forecasting and numerical model initializations. Extensive research has been done with lossless data compression with data from a grating-type ultraspectral instrument. NAST-I aircraft data is chosen for testing data from interferometers until IASI (Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer) and CrIS (Cross-track Infrared Sounder) are available. Preliminary work at CIMSS with lossless data compression of Michelson Interferometer data achieves compression ratios (CR) above 5.
