Data processing, integration and
We routinely process satellite wind and wave data from
scatterometers and altimeters in near real-time. Customised
and quality-controlled measurements are then passed to clients for use
forecasting and model validation. We aim to provide data within 3 hours
of original measurement, and our processing and dissemination
turn-around time is just 10 minutes. A summary of the latest available
given on our near real-time data
In association with Satellite Observing Systems we offer
a high quality
global wave statistics service based on the complete archive of
satellite altimeter measurements since 1985.
We are able to advise on or assist with any of your
Project definition, proposal
preparation and project management
The SatOC team have previously had a high success rate
in proposals to European Space Agency (ESA) programmes,
Commission (EC) Framework Programme and national programmes of the
British National Space Centre (BNSC), Department of Environment, Food
and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and Environment Agency.
Both David Cotton and Ellis Ash have managed large
projects. We are always open to new
partnerships and project suggestions in addition to our work on current
projects and in following up past projects. Find out about specific
projects in Projects
and project management.
User federation, requirements
surveys and analysis
Development projects are usually user driven and
therefore require a clear understanding of user requirements from the
outset. The SatOC team have always worked closely with users, customers
and potential customers of satellite information, and derived products
We have undertaken requirements surveys and worked with
project partners in many marine client sectors, including: global
oil and gas; leisure boating; marine and fisheries research institutes;
coastal and environment authorities and NATO navies.
Bespoke studies, presentations and
We offer bespoke studies and reporting on most aspects
of satellite oceanography including: data availability and
applications; past, present and future satellite systems; commercial
products and service providers; oceanographic research.
