How does it work?
The imaging satellites, MTG-I, carries the Flexible Combined Imager (FCI) and the Lightning Imager (LI) instruments. The sounding satellites, MTG-S, include an interferometer, the Infrared Sounder (IRS) and the Copernicus Sentinel-4 instrument, a high resolution Ultraviolet Visible Near-infrared (UVN) spectrometer.
For further details on the instruments onboard the MTG satellites, including their scanning modes, follow the respective links:
