On January 11, 2018, GeoOptics launched the first of its operational CICERO satellites for atmospheric radio occultation (RO). RO is a potent technique for sensing the atmosphere for improved weather forecasting accuracy, first proposed by GeoOptics founder and CTO Tom Yunck more than 30 years ago. The technique works by precisely observing the signals of […]

Last winter GeoOptics released the first research dataset from our CICERO constellation of radio occultation satellites, a total of a few weeks of data from the early operations of the constellation. As part of our mission to expand knowledge of the Earth, we were happy to open our doors to researchers to allow them free […]
GNSS radio occultation (GNSS-RO) was first developed in the 1990s by the JPL research group led by our founder Tom Yunck. Following several developmental satellites, the COSMIC program was the first large scale deployment of GNSS-RO, a groundbreaking small satellite system jointly developed by the United States and Taiwan that provided the first high-quality occultations […]
