The Advanced Next-generation Television and InfraRed Operational Satellites (ATN) (NOAA 8-19)

  • The primary objective of the Advanced TIROS-N program was to improve on the capabilities and instrumentation of the TIROS-N operational satellites. These improvements consisted of adding instrument capacity to the satellite by making it slightly larger, then adding new instrument systems incrementally starting with NOAA-8. The Advanced TIROS-N program would serve as the fourth generation of US operational weather satellites and is the one currently in use today.
