GeoMetWatch sensors are state-of-the-art, hyperspectral atmospheric sounders—the core technology behind the sensors was developed by the US Government at a cost of several hundred million dollars.

GeoMetWatch will place six unique data-gathering sensors into geostationary orbit (22,236 miles above the equator) to collect atmospheric data. This data will then be conveyed to data centers around the world, where it will be processed and configured per customer specifications to provide severe weather forecast information.

These highly sophisticated technologies will dramatically improve the accuracy and timeliness of severe weather forecasting, enabling the preservation of lives and property at a fraction of the cost of current methods. GeoMetWatch is the only entity possessing a US Department of Commerce Remote Atmospheric Sensing License to use this sophisticated technology. Once completed, GeoMetWatch will be the only provider of this highly-sophisticated weather prediction data in the world.

GeoMetWatch will deploy these six sensors by renting space on standard communication satellites. Downloaded data will be provided to weather agencies, domestic and foreign governments, and commercial entities who have committed to the requirement for this data and have expressed written interest in GeoMetWatch and their solution. This data will vastly improve the ability to provide early warning of severe weather to their populations and operations, saving both lives and property and providing much needed efficiencies.
