Assessment of the benefits of a satellite mission in an early morning orbit
Report from the WMO-CGMS Tiger Team
The scope of this report is to evaluate the benefits of a future satellite mission in a polar sun-synchronous “early morning” orbit, in response to a request from the Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites (CGMS). This evaluation is addressed first from a generic standpoint and then applied more specifically to the potential deployment by the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) of a FY-3 mission in such an orbit. The report is based on the work of the Tiger Team established on this matter by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and CGMS. It summarizes the outcome of the Tiger Team seminar hosted by CMA in Beijing on 25 and 26 April 2013.
