GOES 17.

Details of the transition from GOES 15 to GOES 17 as the GOES W operational satellite can now be found here :-

It looks as if engineers have managed to minimise the cooling issue of the ABI instrument (but not fix it) so as to provide about 97% of the expected data. More details can be found here :-

All being well we should at least have test GOES 17 data on Eumetcast HVS-1 before the end of the year.
