weather forecasting automation Applications

  • Fire Danger Rating / Forecasting

    For various reasons, including the changing global climate, wildfires are getting bigger, more destructive and more expensive. Effective, consistent and reliable detection of climate parameters is the key to preventing wildfires and managing the impact they have. Our equipment resides for decades in solitary confinement generally in very remote areas (often at the tops of mountains or deep within a national forest), constantly measuring and recording weather data. Once per hour, this data is transmitted back to government agencies who will analyze and use it to make decisions critical to the safety of the public. In the United States, FTS works closely with the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC). The center’s mission is the complex interagency coordination of wildland firefighting resources for the country. One of the resources is the network of remote automated weather stations (RAWS), the vast majority of which are supplied by FTS.

  • Aviation Meteorology

    SWS and VPF sensors are used in airports throughout the world as part of aviation ground control and meteorological monitoring systems. Our visibility and ambient light sensors form the core of Runway Visual Range monitoring systems used to control the safe landing of aircraft in reduced visibility conditions. Our present weather sensors provide automated precipitation classification and monitoring that forms a vital part of the METAR signals broadcast to aircraft in the airport vicinity. The detection and reporting of thunderstorms is important in the aviation industry supporting both the safety of ground operations and the provision of meteorological data to aircraft and forecasting authorities. Our BTD-300 Thunderstorm Detector has been developed to be compliant with FAA regulations for lightning detection systems used at airfields.
