Earlier this month, GeoOptics was awarded a contract to provide space weather data from its CICERO earth observation satellites for National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s Commercial Weather Data Program. GeoOptics’s radio occultation data can help generate highly accurate 3-D maps that measure electron density profiles in the Earth’s ionosphere. This data is invaluable in monitoring and […]
The world’s oceans cover more than 70 percent of our planet and contain 97 percent of the Earth’s water. Protecting, conserving, maintaining, and rebuilding our oceans and its ecosystems is critical to life today and to future generations. As part of this global effort and National Oceans Month, Oregon Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici introduced a bi-partisan […]
We are counting down the days – ONE WEEK! – until GeoOptics next generation of satellites launch from Cape Canaveral on SpaceX’s Transporter 5 mission. These spacecraft are the opening stage of GeoOptics’s CICERO-2 constellation which will form a first-of-its-kind unified Earth observatory to better monitor and prepare for the impacts of climate change. Our […]
A global leader in Earth remote sensing, GeoOptics announced its expansion in Europe, with founder and chief technology officer, Tom Yunck, relocating to Lausanne, Switzerland, to manage GeoOptics Switzerland SA. The new subsidiary and team of data scientists represent a key component of GeoOptics plans to enhance their commercial satellite services around the globe. “As […]
Satellites Will Track Earth’s Atmosphere, Water, Surface, and Interior Pasadena, CA (Thursday, July 29, 2021) – A leader in Earth remote sensing, GeoOptics Inc., today announced a major upgrade to its CICERO constellation of satellites to measure our evolving planet. With launches beginning next year, CICERO-2 will form a unified Earth observatory allowing governments, industry, […]
First time NOAA has purchased commercial satellite data to be used in operational forecasts GeoOptics is pleased to announce it has received the inaugural order to provide commercial radio occultation data for NOAA’s operational numerical weather prediction (NWP) models. GeoOptics will begin near-real-time data deliveries in March, with 1300 occultations per day meeting NOAA’s stringent data […]
GeoOptics RO data is the most advanced radio occultation data on the market GeoOptics congratulates the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on the release of their Commercial Weather Data Pilot (CWDP) Round 2 Summary today and welcomes the agency’s commitment to operational purchases of commercial Global Navigation Satellite System Radio Occultation (GNSS-RO) data. The […]
GeoOptics, Inc. (GeoOptics) announced today the launch of an original radio occultation data processing system called the GeoOptics Processor for Radio Occultation (GeoPRO) that provide even more accurate and timely weather data from its CICERO constellation of radio occultation (RO) satellites. CICERO nanosatellites are designed to create the most detailed picture ever assembled of the […]
