The data are image data from the MSU-GS instrument. They consist of full-disk images with 4km spatial resolution at the sub-satellite point, every 30 minutes. The following six channels will be made available:

Channel Spectral band, μm Product ID
3 0.8–0.9 00_9_076E
4 3.5–4.0 03_8_076E
6 7.5–8.5 08_0_076E
8 9.2–10.2 09_7_076E
9 10.2–11.2 10_7_076E
10 11.2–12.5 11_9_076E

The expected number of files per 30-minute repeat cycle is 38 (6 segments * 6 channels, plus prologue and epilogue files), which results in 1824 files per day with an overall data volume of ~870 MB per day.

The file format is compressed XRIT and the filenames have the following scheme:

prodid: Product ID, specifying the channel, as shown in the table above
segment: Segment number, [000001-000006]
time: Timestamp [YYYYMMDDhhmm]

Example: H-000-GOMS3_-GOMS3_4_____-11_9_076E-000006___-202104112100-C_

The data will be distributed on EUMETCast as follows:

EUMETCast Europe

Channel: E1B-TPG-1
Multicast address:
PID: 500

EUMETCast Africa

Channel: A1C-TPG-1
Multicast address:
PID: 100

EUMETCast Terrestrial

Channel: T01-TPG-1
Multicast address:

Note: the SatelliteID in the prologue file is 19002 that corresponds to Electro-L N2 (GOMS2). Roshydromet has been informed and a correction is expected.
