Abstract

Following a successful launch on November 20, 1993, the European Space Agency's Meteosat-6 satellite began to experience an anomaly in the functioning of its radiometer, which affects the spacecraft's full operational capabilities.

The anomaly was discovered in December during quality checks of the infrared images. The reasons for the anomaly are now being investigated by a task force consisting of ESA and industry personnel.
