Meteorological specialists, Biral is returning to InterMet Asia in Singapore next month to showcase a number of its technically advanced meteorological products.
Biral experts will be at the show demonstrating a wide variety of meteorological equipment. These are the BTD-200 Thunderstorm Detector, VPF-730 and SWS-200 Visibility & Present Weather Sensors, the BTD-350 and BTD-300 Thunderstorm Detectors.
The new BTD-200 lightning warning system is a complete detection and warning system which has been developed from the Biral range of professional aviation grade lightning detection systems. It reliably detects the local presence of all forms of lightning out to a range of 35km (22 miles) from the sensor. Designed to be installed and set up by non-technical staff, it comes with a power supply and the essential PC application ‘Lightning Works’, for monitoring and warning personnel of approaching thunderstorms.
IBM and its subsidiary The Weather Company today unveiled a powerful new global weather forecasting system that will provide the most accurate local weather forecasts ever seen worldwide. The new IBM Global High-Resolution Atmospheric Forecasting System (GRAF) will be the first hourly-updating commercial weather system that is able to predict something as small as thunderstorms globally. Compared to existing models, it will provide a nearly 200% improvement in forecasting resolution for much of the globe (from 12 to 3 km). It will be available later this year.
GRAF uses advanced IBM POWER9-based supercomputers, crowdsourced data from millions of sensors worldwide, and in-flight data to create more localized, more accurate views of weather globally. IBM Chairman and CEO Ginni Rometty announced GRAF at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.
Vaisala introduces the latest version of the RFL series data loggers – the RFL100 Temperature-only. The data loggers use Vaisala’s proprietary VaiNet wireless technology to monitor temperature in fridges, freezers, incubators, LN2 tanks, cold rooms, and ultralow temperature freezers.
Each wireless data logger can communicate over 100 meters indoors, depending on conditions. Connectivity for up to 32 RFL100 data loggers is provided by a VaiNet Access Point (AP10). The RFL100 temperature data loggers use fixed or cabled probes for a measurement range of -196 to +90 °C. For temperature and humidity monitoring, Vaisala launched the VaiNet Wireless Temp/RH Data Logger RFL100 earlier this year. All RFL data loggers use viewLinc 5.0 software for monitoring, alarming and reporting.

These are 10 Jetbroom snow removal vehicles and 2 Airport De-icers. A total of 18 jetbrooms, 2 de-icing vehicles, 1 Pony multipurpose carrier and an ice early-warning system (AWIS) from Boschung are now in use at Dalian Airport.
The Chinese port city of Dalian on the Yellow Sea has an important aviation hub with its Dalian Zhoushuizi airport. Flights to and from Japan, Korea and Russia as well as numerous domestic flights are handled here. Dalian has a continental climate influenced by the monsoon, with humid summers and cold winters. During the cold months, the average temperature drops to below zero with considerable precipitation, so the airport has to provide the necessary capacity for winter maintenance.
Vaisala, the global leader in environmental and industrial measurement, including comprehensive lightning data, has developed the capability to distinguish cloud-to-ground lightning strokes that contain continuing current, the most damaging of lighting strokes. This first-of-its-kind technology offers precision in identifying these strokes, which can last up to 1,000 times as long as a typical lighting stroke and may be more likely to cause fire or other extreme heat-related damage.
"Our patent-pending technique is a game-changer in lightning detection. For the first time, industries where charge transfer from lightning is a threat, including electric utilities, oil and gas, wind farms, and land management organizations, can identify and target the small percentage of lightning strokes most likely to cause asset damage or start fires," said Brooke Pearson, Vaisala's Global Solutions Manager for Lightning.
Vaisala's suite of premier lightning detection technologies detect both cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning. They include the National Lightning Detection Network (NLDN) in the U.S., which detects cloud-to-ground lightning strokes with a location accuracy of fewer than 150 meters, and the GLD360 global lightning network, which has the ability to detect lightning anywhere in the world.
