As a first of a kind initiative, Air New Zealand has committed to providing engineering, certification and installation and will  fly NASA’s newly developed  GNSS-R (Global Navigation Satellite Systems-Reflectometry) as part of its regular domestic operations.  (If of interest a press-release about this project can be found here  

We at the University of Auckland are developing a Science and Payload operations Centre (SPOC) to support the engineering and science research and facilitate the educational outreach of this collaboration.  For the SPOC we would like to track the GNSS-R equipped aircraft in near-real-time enabling us to determine for each flight where, when and what science data was collected and even predict data quality, enabling scientists and end-users identify the most relevant and timely information for their needs.
