A French SME expert in precision weather services proposes technical assistance on all aspects of a meteorological project. By integrating multi-source data and technology including X-band radar, the SME provides detailed information on extended areas (1500km2) with high spatial and temporal resolution (a ground resolution of 150 to 300 meters), very useful for precision agriculture or industrial sites management.
A French SME expert in precision weather services proposes technical assistance on all aspects of a meteorological project: - weather strategy consulting: first inventory of available data, establishment of a roadmap supporting the weather strategy - Data collection and management: integration, control, processing and calibration of data, quality control. - Installation and maintenance of equipment: weather stations, pluviometers (rain gauge), X-band radars - Personal training The company has a multi-source platform integrating data from X-band radars, satellites, pluviometers and numerical models. It proposes forecasts between 15 minutes to 10 days, in real time 24h/24h. The company provides detail information on extended area (1500km2) with high spatial and temporal resolution (a ground resolution of 150 to 300 meters). The SME searches partners in agriculture to support them to responsible, sustainable and precision agriculture. The reciprocal challenges between precision agriculture and precision meteorology aim to improve management of agricultural parcel, optimum yields, cost reduction (fertilizer, irrigation, etc). Industrial partners are also sought to support them to manage industrial sites. Meteorological site monitoring for extreme weather events (flood, heat wave, strong wind) can reduce operating losses due to site-based work cessation. In accordance with partners’ business continuity plans, the company develops site surveillance and alerting protocols.
Innovations and advantages
- Tailor-made interventions: optimization and reconfiguration of meteorological equipment for partners’ specificity. - Leader in France of X-band high resolution radars implementation and exploitation. The X-band radar technology has a range of 36 km, a spatial resolution of 150 meters and a temporal resolution of 3 to 5 minutes.
