Solar Instruments
The GOES Extreme UltraViolet Sensor measures disk integrated EUV flux in 5 bands between 5 and 125 nm. The NOAA GOES satellite program always consists of two operational satellites with an on-orbit spare. The instrumentation is generally the same on all satellites in a given series (e.g. GOES 8-12, GOES 13-15) but there can be exceptions.
