GeoOptics gathers data that solves problems. We make use of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals, such as those from the GPS constellation, to examine the Earth’s atmosphere in fine detail.
The GNSS radio occultation technique was developed by a group at JPL led by our founder Tom Yunck, and over the last few years it has demonstrated unmatched impact on weather forecasts. Our CICERO constellation gathers hundreds of thousands of radio occultation (RO) data points per day to enable weather forecasts of unprecedented accuracy.
The collection of Earth observation data has traditionally been the preserve of national and multi-national government organizations. These organizations face dramatically increased demand for public services while suffering from expanding procurement costs and extended delays.
Our leaders have spent decades working to improve the way that governments create Earth science data and put that experience into designing the GeoOptics system.
We were founded by scientists and engineers with the goal of democratizing access to Earth science data. As part of our contribution to the scientific community, we have pledged to make all of our data freely available for research use.
