Baron Services was founded in 1990 on the principles of localized and accurate severe storm coverage. Over twenty years later, our company has grown tremendously, expanding into weather systems integration, Doppler weather radar, personal weather alerting and much more.

A Commitment to Progress
In everything we do, we strive to achieve the best possible accuracy and timeliness for any weather situation. This focus offers millions of people across the United States access to Baron weather information. That number is growing every day due to our expansion into international markets.

We have been active across several continents, working to upgrade and integrate the infrastructure for Romania’s national weather service. We have installed weather radar systems in several countries, including solid-state, klystron and coaxial magnetron configurations. Baron also offers the capability to integrate detection sensors into a comprehensive network, merging both new and legacy weather assets into a single solution unifying the detection, analysis, visualization and distribution of inclement weather events.

Baron holds numerous US patents for its innovations in storm tracking, radar and weather alerting technology, including patents for site-specific text message alerting and tornado prediction.

A Commitment to Our Partners
Baron has entered into long-term partnerships with many leading companies across several industries where weather is of utmost importance. Our teaming with XM Satellite Radio resulted in the creation of XM WX Satellite Weather, a mobile datalink service that delivers timely and accurate graphical weather data to aircraft, marine vessels and automobiles. Through XM Weather, our mobile weather division supplies content-rich weather data to industry leaders like Bendix/King by Honeywell, Garmin, Jeppesen, Rockwell Collins and many more. XM WX is available as a standard option on most airframes sold in the United States, including those by Cessna, Cirrus, Mooney, Piper and others.

Based in Huntsville, Ala. in the United States, Baron has led in the way in the development of Doppler weather radar, including our pioneering work in dual-polarization radar technology. In addition to the deployment of dual-pol radar installations at broadcast television stations across America, we are working with L-3 STRATIS to upgrade 171 NEXRAD installations with dual-polarization capability for the U.S. National Weather Service, Federal Aviation Administration and Department of Defense.

Baron’s focus on accurate, easy-to-interpret weather analysis has led the way to the development of our Threat Matrix technology, encompassing road weather conditions across the continental United States. The result is a US-patented, consumer-driven synopsis of current and expected conditions a driver can expect to encounter along any route. Threat Matrix technology is available, in the form of the XM NavWeather service, in vehicles from Acura, Hyundai, Infiniti, Lexus, Nissan and Porsche. It is also available on Honda Goldwing motorcycles, and through fishing systems from Humminbird.

Our Facilities
Our Huntsville, Ala. facility is home to a state-of-the-art, tornado-hardened data center, where all the meteorological processing we do is performed. In addition to our Huntsville headquarters, we have auxiliary offices in Asheville, NC; Melbourne, Fla., and Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Asheville facility serves as a backup data center, and also performs continuous processing for our BAMS numerical weather prediction model runs.
