Coordinating the activities of Members related to the space-based observing system component of the WMO Integrated Global Observing System to ensure sustained and interoperable satellite observations and to promote their applications.
Start date1 June 2003
Publish Date: 8 June 2018
The space-based observing system is making essential contributions to the generation of weather, water and climate-related products and services and helps support policy- and decision making. The number of operational satellites that are part of this space-based observing system and their capabilities is growing, and a considerable number of satellites with new capabilities that are presently in the planning stage will soon join the system.

Seven new generation geostationary satellites will be launched into positions over the equator within the next five years. These launches will drastically change the Space Component of the WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS) and National Meteorological and Hydrological Services are challenged to prepare for the advanced capabilities the satellites will offer. The imager capabilities, sampling rate, spectral resolution and spectral channels, of this new generation of satellites will drastically increase data rates – by an order of up to 100. All National Meteorological Hydrological...
Through its Technical Commission, Programmes and Regional Offices as well as by synergistic partnerships, WMO facilitates the maintenance and expansion of its Members' atmospheric, oceanographic and land-based observational networks; the free unrestricted exchange of the resulting data and information; and related capacity development and research in order to optimize the production weather, climate and water-related services worldwide.
