Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) Imaging and Sounding satellites. The system includes four MTG-I imaging (foreground) and two MTG-S sounding satellites. Continuing the long-standing partnership between ESA and the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (Eumetsat), and building on the success of the first two generations of Meteosat satellites, this new family of weather satellites will not only guarantees the continuity of data for weather forecasting from geostationary orbit into the next decades, but will also provide advanced imaging capabilities, all-new infrared sounding and lightning imaging for warnings of severe storms.
