Abstract : This document describes the testing and evaluation of the Automated Optical Processing System (AOPS) version 4.8 for the Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) sensor. AOPS enables exploitation of multiple space-borne ocean color satellite sensors to provide optical conditions for operational Navy products supporting mine Warfare (MIW), Naval Special Warfare (NSW), expeditionary warfare (EXW), and antisubmarine warfare (ASW). Ocean optical products are used to predict the impact of the environment on diver operations, communications, mine detection, and target detection. As part of this evaluation, comparisons are made with existing operational satellite products from MOSIA- Aqua, in situ data from ocean cruises and comparison with the Aerosol Robotic Network-Ocean Color (AERONET-OC) SeaPrism sensors. These comparisons show that VIIRS generates high quality ocean color products and should provide a continued data stream to support operational products
