The United States Navy is developing a computer workstation capable of ingesting real time satellite data, called the Tactical Environmental Support System, third generation, or TESS3. This computer is expected to reside at both ashore and afloat sites. One of the main functions of TESS3 is to process digital satellite data from the NOAA and DMSP satellites. The baseline processing include the automated scheduling, ingest, navigation and display of the imagery. The Naval Oceanographic and Atmospheric Laboratory NOARL is augmenting the capability with cloud analysis software that is capable of detailed cloud analysis and classification.
