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 […]

In early 2018, we launched the first satellite in our operational constellation. (You can see the location of that satellite in real-time, at this third-party site: n2yo.com). Over the course of 2018, we expanded the operational envelope of that spacecraft, learned its quirks, both good and bad, and evolved it to high-availability, real-time operations. That […]
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 […]
