Protect Crews With Lightning Detection

INO Weather Pro provides lightning detection to help protect construction crews.

INO Weather Pro provides lightning detection to help protect construction crews.

INO Technologies has introduced the INO Weather Pro, a handheld device that combines area and weather data, such as heat index, altitude and dew point, with lightning detection to help protect construction crews. Although most lightning-detection technology relies on national weather data feeds and requires an internet or cellular connection, the INO Weather Pro has its own sensor providing real-time local lightning detection and direction. The tool detects the distance of cloud-to-ground lightning strikes as far as 40-miles away, providing visual and auditory feedback of lightning-strike distances. With an updatable software interface and a touchscreen display, users are able to customize their dashboards with the information most important to them. The portable device is water resistant and runs on a USB-charged lithium battery.

MetLoop Releases Severe Weather Alert Mobile Application

MetLoop is interrupting the status quo of weather forecasting by utilizing a military grade weather alert system; turned enterprise.  The key feature of the software system is its ability to provide severe weather alerts at specified locations. The Dallas based company is also providing consumers, government agencies, local municipalities and businesses with an on-call meteorologist service that pinpoints real-time weather forecasting (30-60 minutes in advance) to any mobile device. Leading the charge is tech mogul, David Carlson, MetLoop’s co-founder and CEO.

The site-specific U.S. meteorological data will be available for both consumers and resellers using a cloud based software-as-a-service (SaaS) business model.  The alert-based software will be provided across multiple mobile devices, scaling opportunities across multiple market verticals. The data boasts a 95% accuracy being developed from MetLoop’s Weather Command Center, in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.

MetLoop is launching a consumer-friendly initiative utilizing a platform in order to inform its subscribers about any case of severe weather alert. This includes providing the information across all commercially available IoT (internet-of-things) devices. CEO, David Carlson, says, “We are providing severe weather alerts, that are not currently available through the National Weather Service, to the consumer and a safe network where we can actually track people via their phone, via their car, and even within their homes to give them as much advance warning if a tornado is coming.”

MetLoop’s team of software engineers and meteorologists has cross-market expertise, integrating across cloud-based software, big-data computing, weather satellite technology, wireless communications, and IoT devices.  Leading the advanced integration is CTO, Richard McGee.

MetLoop rolls out three new subscription-based software product lines in fall 2016, including a mobile app, customizable desktop software, and enterprise interfaces. MetLoop is working to provide the market with content on new types of technology required to secure transmission of time-sensitive weather data.
