Paper Abstract

The current METEOSAT Operational Program will continue its service until 1995, possibly till 1997. Subsequently, the METEOSAT Second Generation (MSG) is planned to replace the current system (similar to the " compatible" US "GOES-Next" and the Japanese GMS follow-on generation as major elements of the global geostationary meteorological satellite systems). The payload of MSG is supposed to comprise a Microwave Vertical Sounder and two optical instruments which are described in this paper, i.e.: - a Visible/Infrared Imaging Radiometer (VIRI) - an IR Vertical Sounder (IRS).
