Summary
Abstract: 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 ... View entire text

Purpose: The Solar X-ray Imager (SXI) is used to determine when to issue forecasts and alerts of 'space weather' conditions that may interfere with ground and space systems. These conditions include ionospheric changes that affect radiocommunication (both ground-to-ground and satellite-to-ground) and magnetospheric variations that induce currents in electric power grids and long distance pipelines and can ...
