Count Component Title Abstract
1 GOES-12 Solar X-ray Imager Archive The GOES Solar X-ray Imager is integrated into the GOES-12 satellite, whose primary mission is to provide Earth-weather monitoring. The SXI is operated by NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS). NOAA's Space Environment Center (SEC) receives the telemetry stream directly from SXI, processes the data, and integrates the observations into their space weather alert and forecast services. The data are sent in real time to NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) where they are immediately made available to the public, and preserved in a secure archive for future research.SXi was launched in with GOES-M on Juy 23, 2001 Post Launch Test data were available from August - December 2001.SXI officially entered operations in April 2003.
