A substantial amount of the earth's surface remains unobserved.
Beginning in the mid 1990’s, weather data began a transition from a high science data only used by the military, researchers, and the largest of risk mitigation practices, to a tool used in all aspects of business across countless markets. Today the use of weather data is prolific and will only continue to be integrated deeper into business and market operations. As rapid as the growth of weather data usage has been, there is still a substantial amount of the Earth’s surface and atmosphere that remain under observed. To date, the primary providers of weather data have been government agencies such as NASA, NOAA, US Air Force, ESA, EUMETSAT, etc. As with any new technical industry that stems from government research and development, there comes a day when private industry will become the leader and technology driver. OMS intends to facilitate that transition by leading the way as a premium commercial alternative in weather data acquisition.|
Here’s how OMS works:
- Our state-of-the-art microwave sensor is the core instrument of our satellites. It observes two channels, water and oxygen. Infrared cameras are focused on temperature wavelength and filtered visible cameras offer NDVI.
- Primary observation data includes temperature and moisture measurements. These two pieces of information can be combined to monitor a vast array of weather events.
- The weather data is consolidated at our terrestrial control center. It can be delivered to you via VPN, directly over the web, or in a writeable package. There are a number of other delivery methods.
- Data can be made available whenever and wherever you require. It may flow internally or be distributed to client-designated rework or analytics partners.
- The data we provide is used by our clients for financial modeling, catastrophe preparation, risk mitigation, agriculture, transportation, and research.
