Raytheon’s VIIRS View app puts the world in the palm of your hand

Available for iPhone, iPad and Android, VIIRS View provides mobile device users a look into the type of data meteorologists and climatologists use every day to track the weather and monitor Earth’s environment. Based on data generated by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite aboard Suomi NPP, VIIRS View combines visible light imagery, low-light nighttime imagery and ocean chlorophyll concentration onto a full Earth globe, rotatable and zoomable on any location on the planet. A desktop version of the VIIRS View app, launched in February, has been downloaded more than 90,000 times.

Come see the original large format VIIRS View interactive table top display at Raytheon Booth #203 and respond to this email, text or call John Barksdale at 310.658.9547 for information about VIIRS View and the Raytheon VIIRS JPSS-1 program, now in Environmental Test.
