FIle Viewer Application
File Viewer Application is an offline browsing platform designed to provides a convenient file browsing experience for the satellite data receivers. The platform provides features such as categorizing data based on content and publisher; filtering by file type; sorting by date, name, file size and subject category; and searching for specific files by keyword. Users can access the data packages through viewer platform to read, watch, or listen to the files.
