Our dedicated team of engineers builds and supplies weather nowcasting data to EFB and aviation software developers.
Our nowcasting data is produced by data fusion of near real-time Earth observation sources including satellite imagery (EUMETSAT), ground observations, as well as traditional numerical weather prediction forecasts.
We offer our own off-the shelve data products, as well as tailormade solutions using the latest scientific meteorological and data science techniques.
Active thunderstorms can be detected with estimation of their top altitude, intensity, maturity stage and near future movements.
Advance awareness before the arrival of a Storm can add to safety.
The estimation algorithm exploits the fact that strong convective formations behave as raising “bubbles” in the atmosphere.
These are detected by tracking altitudes of clouds over time and estimating the speed of their vertical movement.
Being the only one in the world with such a feature, our team is very proud to have developed this.
Rain probability is what we analyze for clients.
We use computed state-of-the-art weather now casting algorithms and calibrated using ground observation time series.
The rain forecast can provide details like:
Convective Rain: In bright colours showing the status of rain convection
Rain Probability: In different tones of blue showing the rain probability
Rain Composite: An overview of both at one glance
Optical thickness of observed cloud cover at vertical levels is estimated by enhancing the most recent observations of clouds optical properties from space with the most recent ground-based observations and NWP forecasts.
We can provide data about cloud thickness, as well as cloud tops and their bases.
Vertical graphs can be produced, indicating the clouds expected en route.
We can show a 5 hours future look of the movement of cloud layers.
Meandair BV licenses its weather nowcasting data for the new feature of the SkyDemon app called Flyable Conditions. After several months of integration and testing, team Meandair is thrilled to announce the cooperation with Skydemon.…read more
