Steven Ross: Due to the degradation of the the AVHRR scan motor on NOAA-17, NOAA has announced that Polar winds data from NOAA-17 can no longer be generated.
Over the past few months the AVHRR scan motor continues to degrade further and at this point no recovery seems possible for the AVHRR instrument. It will only be a matter of time that the AVHRR will completely fail and no imagery will be produced. At that time users will be instructed to use NOAA-15 as a backup.
Further updates on this development will be posted here and on NOAA’s website when they become available.
