ENABLING GOES-R IN SPACE
L3Harris’ Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) is the primary instrument for the GOES-R Series, providing imaging of Earth’s weather, climate, oceans and the environment. Its advanced capabilities reflect more than 40 years of experience producing geostationary imaging radiometers.
ABIs are in orbit on GOES-East and GOES-West. ABIs will also provide advanced capabilities on GOES-T and GOES-U. In addition to supporting NOAA, ABI-class imagers are used onboard the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA)’s Himawari-8 and -9 satellites. The Geostationary Korea Multi-Purpose Satellite – 2A (GEO-KOMPSAt-2S) also carries an L3Harris ABI imager.
