The availability of accurate weather information is now essential to the agricultural sector and many economic actors (industry, energy, insurance, etc.). A French SME expert in precision weather services has developed a data multi-source platform integrating measurements from X-band radars, satellites, weather stations and results from numerical models. It proposes historical information (up to 10 years), 24 hours a day and real time, information and forecasts. The company provides this detailed information on extended area (European-wide) with high spatial and temporal resolution.
The company proposes technical assistance on all aspects of a meteorological project :
- Weather strategy consulting: first inventory of available data, establishment of a road map supporting the weather strategy
- Data collection and management: integration, control, processing and calibration of data, quality control.
- Installation and maintenance of equipment: weather stations, pluviometers (rain gauge), X-band radar
- Personal training
The SME searches partners for technical cooperation agreement, in agricultural sector to provide solutions in processes for sustainable and precision agriculture. The reciprocal challenges between precision agriculture and precision meteorology aim to improve management of agricultural parcel, optimum yields, cost reduction (fertilizer, irrigation, etc).
Industrial partners are also sought to provide solutions for industrial sites monitoring exposed to natural disasters for instance. Meteorological site monitoring for extreme weather events (flood, heat wave, strong wind) can reduce operating losses due to site shut off. In accordance with partners’ business continuity plans, the company develops site monitoring and alerting protocols.
