Meteomatics will test automated network of drone-based weather-stations

| |

In the coming months, Swiss-based weather data specialist Meteomatics will test the orchestration of an automated network of ‘hyperlocal’ drone-based weather-stations in Eastern Switzerland, which can provide detailed analysis and forecasts of weather phenomena such as fog, freezing rain, thunderstorms, heavy wind and drops in temperature.

The drones can be operated as mobile units but also as part of a permanent installation, or “Meteobase” system. Meteobases are docking pods that enable the automatic and simultaneous operation of multiple drone systems. Several pilot studies have successfully demonstrated the positive effect of mobile Meteomatics drones on the quality of high-resolution local fog and storm forecasts.
