St Gallen: (September 10, 2019) – Meteomatics AG, the Swiss-based global weather service provider and weather drone expert, is delighted to announce the signing of a Letter of Intent with leading US based micro weather data analytics and UAS operations expert TruWeather Solutions Inc.
The companies are formalising their business engagement in order to develop new go-to-market strategies with specific emphasis on the use of drones in data gathering through the lower atmosphere to deliver precision hyperlocal forecasting for UAS operations. The strategic business alliance will focus on joint customer development initially in the US and will help both companies take a leading role in minimising weather related risk and maximising business performance for the global drone operations market.
After years of independent customer successes and value creation, Meteomatics and TruWeather have now jointly recognised the growing market opportunity for Meteodrone-enabled local forecasting solutions delivered through tailored decision support and insight services for safe drone operations across both public and private sectors.
“We are delighted to develop our relationship with TruWeather Solutions and welcome them as a growing partner in our mission to lead the next generation of meteorological technology for the modern enterprise,” said Dr Martin Fengler, Founder and CEO of Meteomatics. “By working with TruWeather’s deep expertise in the delivery of ROI enhancing weather data solutions into the aviation, logistics and weather industries we look forward to integrating our industry-leading Meteodrones into the US drone operations market, and to creating an alliance that will ultimately help public and private organisations all over the world derive more value and insights from environmental data than ever before.”
With an increased frequency and severity of extreme weather, and the complexities of accurately forecasting weather at city scale, it is unsurprising that there’s a real need for better hyperlocal forecasting.
Meteomatics’ Meteodrones solve critical challenges for today’s leading-edge organisations by giving them access to high quality environmental data taken from ground level up to 3km, the Planetary Boundary Layer and beyond. By using these Meteodrone-gathered environmental data, organisations can quickly gain deep insights into current and future operational challenges and risks.
TruWeather’s CEO and Co-Founder, Don Berchoff comments: “At TruWeather Solutions, we take pride in working with world-leading weather innovators and technologists to address real operational weather pain points. Meteomatics have been very transparent and open to engage with, and we share the same cultural values that put the delivery of high-quality weather data driven solutions at the centre of our customer relationships. Combining Meteomatics micro weather data with TruWeather’s keen knowledge of the UAS Industry and innovative business analytic insights produces a force multiplier effect for the UAS industry, where weather innovation reduces operations uncertainty while creating real economic value to our customer.”
