About the team
The Meteorological Satellite (MetSat) applications team at CIRA focuses on developing cutting-edge satellite products for research-to-operational use, utilizing a variety of satellite platforms covering the full spectrum of satellite observations. With a broad background in satellite remote sensing and leveraging extensive connections to NOAA, NASA, the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, and other organizations including international collaborations, MetSat group products are designed to support operational forecasting, aviation, marine operations, fire weather, and numerical weather prediction model integration.
MetSat group members support a wide range of projects, from small, experimental programs developing new technologies, to large research-to-operations projects integrating with the National Weather Service and other organizations. The MetSat group also proposes new missions designed to leverage emerging technologies to develop new observations and observational platforms for satellite remote sensing. Data distribution and access are a partnering priority for the MetSat group, as is coordinating with education and training partners to better disseminate the research products created by the group.
