SAPHIR observations are broadcasted in real time by EUMETSAT (via EUMETCast) to the weather forecast agencies for assimilation in forecast and cyclone monitoring models.

Météo-France uses these data in the operational assimilation and to monitor cyclones in the Indian Ocean.

The monitoring of temporal series is available on the Météo France website.
