Private weather forecasting company Skymet Weather Services has raised about $8-10 million (about Rs 51-64 crore at current exchange rate) from Germany-based InsuResilience Investment Fund. The investor acquired a 26.8 per cent stake, including that of investors, in the company.
The new MesoPRO, MetPRO, and WxPRO weather stations are ideal for customers who need research-grade measurements in a new weather station, but may not have the time to design a complete custom system.
The PRO-series weather stations consist of a datalogger, power supply, communication method, instrument mounts, and a suite of meteorological sensors that measure wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, solar radiation, precipitation, soil water content, and soil moisture. These measurements can be used to calculate evapotranspiration, growing-degree days, wind chill, dew point, and other weather-related parameters.
Weather networks often consist of multiple sites, and sometimes sensors or systems from a variety of vendors. Managing this type of network can be a challenge if you have to monitor different applications to view all of the data. Vaisala developed a solution to help overcome this challenge! With Observation Network Manager, you can view all of your observation systems and sensor data, regardless of the vendor, from one place. This saves time, and allows staff members to focus on other tasks.
Observation Network Manager is an automated management system that connects individual systems, sensors and devices so that you can easily monitor and control your sites, and access your weather observation data from anywhere. Learn how easy monitoring weather networks has become by watching this video.
Sigma Space release: As extreme weather events become the norm, actively measuring and tracking the aerosols in the atmosphere can provide key insights to improve forecast accuracy and timeliness. Developed for NASA and the only LiDAR approved for use in NASA’s MPLNET network, Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) is a portable LiDAR scanning system that operates unattended 24/7/365 to provide accurate real-time atmospheric mapping data. The results empower scientists, meteorologists and air quality professionals with an in-depth understanding of the small particles that make a big impact on our environment and health.

Minneapolis, (October 9, 2017) – DTN, a leading provider of information services, announced today that it has been selected by the leading provider of weather information in Ireland, Met Éireann to deliver its Aviation Modernization and Automation Project (AMAP).
Through the project, Met Éireann is implementing the DTN MetConsole® Aviation Weather Suite, an industry-leading platform that will enable automated weather observing systems (AWOS) at five of the main airports in Ireland, including Dublin Airport. MetConsole® will be the backbone of the AMAP system, a nationwide project to modernize the entire aviation meteorological observation infrastructure and will allow for the future development of fully automated observations at some airports.
