[Image: NOAA POES Satellite (35K)] NOAA Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) are three-axis-stabilized spacecrafts that are launched into an orbit 830-870 kilometers high, constantly circling the Earth in an almost north-south orbit, passing close to both poles. POES satellites from NOAA-6 offer 4 or 5 channel multispectral daily repetitive global coverage.
