CustomWeather, Inc., a premier, specialized provider of high-resolution weather data and alert services, announces that it has entered into a partnership with TruWeather Solutions, LLC to produce unique, high resolution forecasts to support UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System). Also known as drones, UAS require close attention to weather conditions, particularly wind, temperature, and severe weather for mission planning and execution.
TruWeather Solutions integrates micro-weather data into a company’s decision-making process. The company is bringing about a cultural change in weather information for industry applications.
For those UAV operators in need of high-resolution data, this partnership has a solution. TruWeather Solutions’ proprietary model with terrain-capturing resolutions at 1,000 meters complements CustomWeather’s own proprietary CW100 model. This combination aims to provide solutions at even more granular 100-meter resolution. Higher resolution data is most needed in locations featuring varying terrain or where operators need precise data available.
Forecasts are provided for any altitude. Variables include wind speed, wind direction, wind gusts, temperature, visibility (surface), precipitation, cloud cover between the surface and 500 meters, and mean sea level pressure (MSLP).
The TruWeather Solutions and CustomWeather forecasts will deploy over the next few months in the state of New York. This will occur in conjunction with New York’s NUAIR Alliance. The NUAIR Alliance has been set up to study UAS. Their research will also help ensure safe UAS integration into the National Airspace System (NAS).
