Just like hurricane airplane hunters track cyclones on Earth, CYGNSS does it from space. By taking 32 wind speed measurements every second, 24 hours a day, CYGNSS significantly improves the coverage of these extreme weather events.
SIFT is a graphical interface used to visualize the predictions by SpOCK of CYGNSS trajectories and wind speed measurement locations, along with cyclone paths forecasted by NOAA. Daily animations of the graphical interface are provided to show these predictions for the current day.
Quicklooks of CYGNSS wind measurement locations over 3-hour periods on top of IR brightness temperature images are computed by SpOCK and provided every day since May 2017.
