GeoMetWatch Partners With AsiaSat To Launch Advanced Severe Weather Payload

"STORMâ„¢ will provide significantly earlier warning for severe weather and climate instability, and it will do so faster, more frequently and with finer detailed measurements than any capability in orbit today," Crain said.

The first STORMâ„¢ sensor is currently being manufactured by Utah State University's Advanced Weather Systems. AWS is part of Utah State's rich heritage of designing, building and testing state-of-the-art space based sensors. "AWS is thrilled to be a part of the GMW-AsiaSat partnership," said Robert T Behunin, AWS Board Member and USU vice president for commercialization.  "This unprecedented partnership and the activities that will come from it will revolutionize the weather sensor and data community; it will also provide a more efficient business model to secure and distribute weather data."

Partnering with Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) of University of Wisconsin for expertise in hyperspectral algorithm development and data processing, the GeoMetWatch system will provide high-resolution, visible and infrared images of atmospheric conditions as well as a complete set of quasi-continuous measurements that are high resolution in vertical, spatial and temporal dimensions. These include profiles of temperature, water vapor, pressure, clouds and wind, three-dimensional fields of aerosols, pollutants, and trace gases, volcanic ash and gases, weather instability, precipitation and flood forecasts, hurricane intensity and ground track, and other data.  GeoMetWatch's products and services will be available globally under an innovative fee-for-service data-buy model that enables its clients to meet their critical atmospheric data needs with increased accuracy, efficiency and affordability.
