MTG-I, launched in December 2022, has released its first images that demonstrates its capability for enhanced weather forecasting.

Teledyne e2v, part of the Teledyne Technologies, delivered the custom designed CMOS image sensor for ESA and the Eumetsat MTG-I imaging satellite. Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) will take over from the two previous Metrological satellite missions that are currently in operation.

The first image from this new weather satellite reveals significantly higher detail of cloud vortices, snow cover on the Alps and sediment in the water along the coast of Italy than previously possible, enabling more accurate prediction and analysis of weather phenomena over Europe. This enhances ‘Nowcasting’, defined as the real-time monitoring of rapidly evolving and potentially damaging weather events such as thunderstorms, where improved warnings could make a difference to public safety and the protection of infrastructure.
