SpOCK is used in the CYGNSS mission to predict the satellite trajectories and the locations of wind speed measurements. Using SpOCK, the CYGNSS team can forecast when CYGNSS measures winds in cyclones and analyze its orbits for maneuvering and collision avoidance purposes.
SIFT is used to visualize the predictions by SpOCK of CYGNSS trajectories and wind speed measurement locations, along with cyclone paths forecasted by NOAA.
