Weather data analytics provider TruWeather Solutions today announced a partnership with safety avionics leader Iris Automation for the integration of TruWeather’s micro weather services and weather sensors into Iris Automation’s Casia G ground-based surveillance system (GBSS). This collaboration will provide operators with access to real-time integrated communications, collision avoidance and micro-weather data.
Micro weather or low-altitude local atmospheric conditions are often drastically different from those in higher altitudes, resulting in a degree of uncertainty for uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) and advanced air mobility (AAM) operations. An FAA-funded study at MIT Lincoln Lab found that only 3% of the U.S. has access to reliable surface weather and cloud ceiling report measurements.
