Abstract: The Geostationary Synthetic Thinned Aperture Radiometer (GeoSTAR) is a new concept for a microwave sounder, intended to be deployed on NOAA’s next generation of geostationary weather satellites, the GOES-R series - due to first launch in 2012. This will fill a serious gap in OW remote sensing capabilities of long standing – a key capability that NOAA is book keeping at the top of its list of “pre-planned product improvements” for GOES-R - i.e. the most urgently needed additional payload, which will be added as soon as funding has been allocated and programmatic issues resolved. Although real-aperture GEO microwave sounders have been proposed over the years, only GeoSTAR is capable of meeting the measurement requirements and is therefore now the leading candidate.
