WIT is committed to providing reliable, high resolution, real-time data and imagery through our weather satellite systems, software and services. We provide GOES, POES, MTSAT, LRIT and Multi Satellite systems.
This highly specialized technology centers on high performance system with built in receivers designed to both ingest and process data from GEOS and MTSAT satellites. Our standard MTSAT system is supplied with a specialized integrated feed with downconverter, and a 3.1 or 3.8 meter pointable fixed position satellite dish. Our popular multiuser SuperLooper animation and image processing software is included with the MTSAT Box. It is specifically designed to quickly and easily loop or animate a time lapse series of images.
The Rapid Visualization Tool (RVT) Workstation is a specialized 64 bit PC workstation running our powerful RVT software that utilizes advanced 3D technology to show you a photo-realistic Earth with real-time weather satellite data mapped on top of it. This photo-realistic Earth may be navigated around, as though you were the pilot of a spaceship - you may look at the Earth and the surrounding data from any perspective, controlling the position and altitude, and furthermore facing any compass direction or viewing the earth from any angle. In the RVT, the operator
can change any combination of the viewing channel, position, altitude, direction, and angle, and these changes take effect virtually instantaneously.
The RVT allows users to animate data through time or space to fully observe and understand weather conditions. Time-lapse loop animations allow the operator to view the progression of weather systems. Traditional weather satellite systems limit you to only animating through time; the RVT also allows you to animate through space. Fly-throughs, or smooth animations through space, allow the user to rapidly view extended areas in a high degree of detail. The Slideshow mode of the RVT allows users to rapidly move through a sequence of their defined areas.
