The GOES-R Post Launct Test (GOES-R PLT) campaign focused on validation observations for the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) and the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI). Flights occurred over the continental US during the spring of 2017. Airborne sensors included NASA’s AVIRIS, FEGS, and multiple wavelengths of radars and lidar, while ground-based lightning mapping arrays also supported the GLM and ABI validation. GOES-R/GOES-16 is a joint mission of NASA and NOAA; NASA participated in GOES-R PLT with many instruments and an ER-2 aircraft.
