Tornadoes are a weather phenomenon that is not uncommon in the US. Due to the current weather data situation, however, tornadoes can only be detected very late. A fact that Meteomatics is able to change with their self developed Meteodrones. The weather drone data enables an early estimation of the Tornado potential by supporting a more accurate forecast. With a size of just 60cm x 60cm, the Meteodrone is very small and looks harmless. Nevertheless the unmanned flying object is designed for very high speeds, as Dr. Martin Fengler, Managing Director of Meteomatics, explained in the SRF Radio interview. The corresponding TV contribution to the improvement of short-term forecasts was broadcast by Eastern Switzerland Television.
