MetOp Operational Status

Welcome to the Meteorological Operational satellite (MetOp) page. MetOp is a European undertaking providing weather data services to monitor the climate and improve weather forecasts. The program also represents the European contribution to a cooperative venture with NOAA. This site provides up to date status information on each spacecraft and its various subsystems.

Below are the color designations for each satellite status:

Status Green Yellow Orange Red Blue Blank
Meaning Operational (or capable of) Operational with limitations
(or Standby)
Operational with Degraded Performance Not Operational Functional,
Turned Off
No Status Reported
Spacecraft Operational Status Status
MetOp-C AM Operational GREEN
MetOp-B AM Primary GREEN
MetOp-A Decommissioned RED
