Orlando, FL—July 27, 2023– MyRadar, a number one supplier of climate and environmental information visualization options, is happy to announce that its Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) proposal has been accepted by the United States Navy’s Office of Naval Research.

MyRadar’s group of scientists and specialists in the area, partnering with the Space Sciences and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will develop an algorithmic instrument that may present extra correct forecasts for cloud representations by means of a 24-hour forecast lead-time. The consequence of the undertaking is not going to solely present longer and higher forecasts of cloud cowl but in addition doubtlessly enhance prediction of different atmospheric traits.

Dr. David Ryglicki, MyRadar’s principal investigator and award-winning meteorologist and information scientist with a background at the National Hurricane Center and the US Naval Research Laboratory, leads the undertaking to bridge the hole between cloud evaluation by satellite tv for pc and forecasts from numerical modeling. The undertaking will make use of information fusion and synthetic intelligence strategies to develop a novel nowcasting functionality for the Navy. “I’m very excited to have a possibility to apply the experience in making use of AI/ML and information fusion MyRadar has efficiently delivered by means of our app to my decade-plus data of the pursuits related to the US Navy.” says Dr. Ryglicki.

The analysis offers a possibility to discover and construct new fashions that would ship improved prediction of cloud cowl and atmospheric traits not just for the Navy, but in addition for industrial industries reminiscent of aviation and maritime transport. “With our confirmed experience in delivering AI-based forecasting expertise by means of the MyRadar app,” says Andy Green, MyRadar CEO, “the group and I are enthusiastic about the potential to prolong this analysis into creating new capabilities that would profit our present and future customers.” As half of MyRadar’s strong AI-based forecasting expertise, we anticipate that this analysis will discover broad utility in industries reminiscent of agriculture, renewable power, and catastrophe administration, serving to them to make data-driven selections and scale back weather-related dangers. As one other instance, higher near-term cloud cowl forecasts would supply vital worth to the aviation trade, particularly in rising functions like air taxis and autonomous aviation
