Satellite Status

Maintained by WMO on behalf of CGMS

This page lists the status of current and future satellites contributing to the WMO Global Observing System (GOS). This information is extracted from OSCAR/Space, (Observing Systems Capability Analysis and Review Tool). For further information, please go directly to the tool, which offers search, filter and export facilities and addresses a larger number of Earth observation satellites.

The links in the tables also lead directly to OSCAR/Space. For more details on the satellites, e.g. payload characteristics, data access or telecommunication frequencies please click on the respective name.
