Radiometrics surpasses 300 radiometer systems worldwide!
Radiometrics is the world’s leading manufacturer of microwave radiometers for environmental remote sensing. For more than two decades, Radiometrics has provided hundreds of worldwide customers with radiometer systems, innovative software tools and technical support for environmental monitoring and prediction.
Applications include high-impact local weather forecasting, wind, solar and electric load forecasting, weather modification, and soil moisture remote sensing. Radiometrics operates the Boundary Layer Network, a nationwide U.S. radiometer network, in partnership with Earth Networks. This first-of-a-kind commercial network delivers boundary layer thermodynamic data essential for accurate short term local weather forecasting.
There are many weather challenges that radiometers can take on, from augmenting weather balloon soundings for data to feed into “data-hungry” weather models, to fog predictions, to air quality measurements and predictions, to utility load forecasting and wind farm management, to a variety of proprietary applications. The following is a small sample of weather challenges our radiometers address:
- Air Quality
- Decision Making
- Predicting Lightning
- High-Impact Local Weather Alerts
- Automated Weather Alerts
- Weather Modification
- High Wind Warning System
Radiometers are also useful for non-weather related applications, such as sensing characteristics of snow pack, vegetation, soil moisture, and chemical plumes.
