Meteomatics is focused on the development of meteorological software products, processing and providing weather data and consulting work. Currently there is barely any data available for temperature, humidity and wind in the lower atmosphere (<2km). To close this data gap it took 3 years to develope the meteodrones.
As first swiss company meteomatics will built a network for flying drones to collect weather data. To make this possible one ore more drone pilots will be hired for the location in St Gallen. Afterwards the flights will take place in the Eastern Switzerland to make extremly precise information on temperature, humidity and wind in the lower atmospher possible. Especially the short-term weather forecasts can be clearly improved by the operational use of the Meteodrones!
