High altitude tests at Jungfraujoch (3454m)

To collect even more data and get further insights into the atmospheric conditions the flight altitude is an important factor for the development of the Meteodrone. For this reason the Meteodrones rose into the sky from the Jungfraujoch and Meteomatics was able to specify the requirements for the propulsion system for high altitude flights.

Final report: SOPHIA - Study of Propeller Icing Hazard in Mini-UAV Aviation 

Ice accumulations cause also problems for e.g. passenger aviation and helicopters. Since more and more unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are used, which are equally affected by icing. During test flights with our Meteodrone ice accumulations, which had a negative impact on the controllability, could be experienced. Because no study exists which analyzes Icing on UAVs, Meteomatics has investigated the icing of propellers together with the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA).

New flight altitude record of the Meteodrones

The aim of the Meteodrones is to improve high-resolution weather forecasting systems. With the help of the drones meteorological parameters are measured within the Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL / <2km), thus closing the existing data gap. For this reason countless test flights have been carried out for up to 2km and Meteomatics started to build a network of drone flight operations last year. On the 29th of July a new record of flight altitude was set up with flights up to 3000m above sea level.

Meteodrones take off at the ISAARA Conference

The Meteodrones, which were specifically developed for meteorological measurements up to 2 kilometers above ground, take up an absolutely exceptional position among the presented aircrafts at the ISARRA Conference. Besides the validation of sampling techniques, inter-comparisons with providers of various different aircrafts were scheduled for the flights in Cardington.

Meteomatics at the EGU

Meteomatics, with its self-developed meteodrones, makes an important contribution to geo sciences because of its research of wind speed, wind direction, dewpoint, temperature and air pressure within the planetary boundary layer. Hence, Meteomatics presented the Meteodrones at the EGU 2017 (European Geosciences Union) in Vienna.

Meteodrones take off at the ISAARA Conference

Meteomatics presented its innovative Meteodrones at the ISAARE Conference in Toulouse from 17 May - 20 May 2016. The Meteodrones, specifically developed for meteorological measurements up to 2 kilometers above the ground, thereby up an absolutely exceptional position among the presented aircrafts. Therefore Meteomatics could reach milestones in the further developement of drone based atmospheric measurements.

Solar Power Forecast Validation Report

The Meteomatics solar power forecast provides a forecast for the power produced through solar power plants with a maximum resolution of 15 minutes and a maximum forecast period of 10 days. This document describes an analysis performed by the research department of Meteomatics. The goal is to analyze the forecast quality and provide figures that enable the comparison to solar power forecasts of other weather services.

ERA-Interim Validation Report

ERA-Interim is a weather re-analysis model of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), providing global harmonized weather data starting in 1979. The validation report describes an analysis, performed by the research department of Meteomatics, with the goals of verifying the correlation of the re-analysis model with real weather observations and finding evidence for severe weather events.
