CGMS 2016

The objective of the Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites (CGMS) is the global coordination of the operational meteorological satellite systems, including protection of in orbit assets, contingency planning, improvement of quality of data, support to users, facilitation of shared data access and development of the use of satellite products in key application areas. The coordination is pursued from an end-to-end perspective, through development of multi-lateral coordination and cooperation across all meteorological satellite operators in close coordination with the user community (WMO, IOC-UNESCO and other user entities).
