>>> is the unsigned right shift operator.

This is necessary because the normal right shift operator >> will shift bits in from the left, but will preserve the sign.

The leftmost bit in the bit representation of a number indicates its sign.

>>> will force 0 to be shifted in even if the number is negative.
