Paper Abstract

The first satellite of the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-R series (GOES-R), the next generation of NOAA geostationary environmental satellites, was launched November 19, 2016. This satellite, GOES-16, carries six instruments dedicated to the study of the Earth’s weather (ABI), lightning mapping (GLM), solar observations (EXIS and SUVI), and space weather monitoring (SEISS and MAG). Each of these six instruments are in the process of going through a series of specialized calibration plans to achieve their product quality requirements. In this review paper we will describe the overall status of the on-orbit calibration program, the path forward to Full product validation status, and any changes that may occur for the cal/val plans for GOES-S, which is planned for launch in early 2018.
