TWAi’s mission is to save lives and mitigate damage from hurricanes and other climate-related events by improving global forecasting technologies through 4D polar wind data and providing earlier, 2X more accurate hurricane forecasts. The data collected by our Hurricane Hunter NanoSat constellation will be leveraged into a suite of powerful weather apps that will help businesses and governments predict, plan, and profit from weather.
Tropical Weather Analytics, Inc. is the commercial spinoff of Visidyne, Inc. We have been awarded over $108 million dollars in direct contracts by NASA, DoD, and commercial satellite companies to develop our unique, proprietary measuring technique.
We supply the missing piece to weather forecast models
Solving The Weather Forecast Problem Weather forecasting models cannot keep up with the pace of climate change and extreme events. Our NanoSats will deliver the missing data set forecasters need to make more accurate and reliable weather predictions.
The Polar Winds interact with the jet streams and drive the majority of weather patterns across the globe. But existing satellites only provide a 2D solution to a 4D problem, measuring winds in just the horizontal axes while vertical winds are sparsely, and poorly, measured by weather balloons and stations. We will leverage our 4D (XYZ + Time) measuring technique to collect wind measurements across all altitudes with greater frequency and higher resolution. This gives forecasters a more accurate starting point to derive their forecasts from.
