Abstract:
The SMS/GOES Satellite obtains day and night weather information from synchronous geostationary orbit by means of (a) earth imaging, (b) collection of environmental data from ground based sensors, platforms, and (c) monitoring of the space environment. SMS-1 and SMS-2 have been in orbit for 17 months and 8 months respectively and are presently taking full earth disc images in the visible and infrared every 30 minutes. SMS-1 is positioned to cover the eastern portion of the United States while SMS-2 is positioned to cover the western portion. This paper provides a general overview of the imaging communication portions of the SMS/GOES, related to the image data encoding and transmission as well as the method of the data time multiplexing and the manner in which the scan line to line synchronization is achieved.
