Environmental Intelligence: Global to Local Solutions
Weather, Water, Land.
EarthCast starts with real-time, highly precise data about what is happening on the land, sea, and in the atmosphere. We use this to generate extremely accurate information about what will happen in the future at your exact location,
anywhere on the planet.
The EarthCast team specializes in developing local and site-specific monitoring and prediction capabilities for clients who require high-resolution, rapid-update predictions. Utilizing real-time, space-based observations and advanced
prediction technologies, we provide customer-focused data streams and products detailing weather, water, and land conditions in real time, for any location on the planet.
EarthCast’s Data as a Service (DaaS) provides the hyperlocal, real-time monitoring and prediction information our clients need to make critical operational decisions.
Utilizing next generation, rapidly updating global satellite observations to monitor the Earth in real time, EarthCast provides critical environmental information for any location on the planet, including remote areas, open oceans and
high latitude locations. We also monitor and predict space weather impacts on the Earth’s atmosphere. From real-time observations to predictions of future conditions, information is ready for global information systems (GIS) integrations
to support mission planning, historical analysis, context for trends, and environmental data solutions.
Intuitive products like the 3 km resolution Global Radar Forecast shown below provide unrivaled situational awareness for true, all-domain environmental awareness.

Environmental Intelligence: Science, Technology & Engineering Services
Lower Atmosphere & Aviation
EarthCast develops environmental intelligence solutions for some of the world’s biggest airlines and defense companies provided as both in-cockpit and ground-based solutions supporting tens of thousands of pilots and operations
personnel with mission-critical, 24/7/365 operations. We develop customized solutions to deal with complex environmental hazards – from real-time alerting for turbulence to forecasting convective hazards around the globe.
Designed specifically for aviation, EarthCast provides monitoring and prediction products throughout the lower atmosphere with over 100 vertical flight levels (up to 100,000 ft+), including visibility, degraded visual environment (DVE), cloud cover, cloud bases, cloud tops and ceilings, wind speed and direction, and more.
EarthCast also provides real-time alerting for flight hazards such as convection, icing, hail, volcanic ash, turbulence (with 3D views), lightning, contrails, and more.
Hydrology, Land & Sea
EarthCast provides advanced environmental modeling solutions predicting numerous hazards and reducing the impact that they have on our customers’ operations. Our hydrology modeling solutions provide predictions of flash flooding,
streamflow, infiltration, saturation, washout, and groundwater flow.
Land surface models provide detailed information about soil conditions, including soil moisture and temperature, while ocean surface models provide information on key conditions including surface temperature and wave heights at sub-kilometer resolutions.
EarthCast’s monitoring and prediction products include real-time alerting for hazards such as threats to commercial aviation, high-risk transportation corridors, railroad washout prediction, as well as flood and flash flood alerting.
Upper Atmosphere & Space
EarthCast is monitoring and predicting the upper atmosphere and space environment which is driven by the incoming solar wind (velocity, density, and magnetic field), solar ultraviolet (UV) and Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) radiation, as well as gravity waves & tides from the lower part of the terrestrial atmosphere.
EarthCast’s operational Whole Atmosphere Models (WAM) provide revolutionary real-time, integrated space weather products and solutions for the Earth’s neutral atmosphere to an altitude 3,000 km+. This is a dramatic expansion of the ability to monitor and predict the full depth and volume of the Earth’s terrestrial atmosphere.
In addition to extending prediction capability through the depths of the atmosphere, EarthCast is developing innovative technologies for monitoring and predicting the space weather plasma component of the atmosphere. Ionosphere Plasmasphere Electrodynamics (IPE) provides global four-dimensional (4D) models of plasma densities and velocities (9 ion species), as well as ion and electron temperatures in the ionosphere and plasmasphere. This new knowledge is critical to launch and space operations of high-altitude vehicles, satellites, and high frequency (HF) communications.
EarthCast supports both national defense and commercial customers with advanced solutions for space-age challenges.
Defense and Government
EarthCast provides research, development, and system customization services to the Department of Defense and integrators supporting initiatives in commercial weather solutions, hypersonic vehicle and range testing, rapid-update space-based
observations, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), and in-cockpit environmental situational awareness. EarthCast is committed to serving the warfighter by applying advanced, commercially developed technologies to our nation’s defense
through DoD Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) awards.
EarthCast delivers monitoring and prediction products for terrestrial weather that reach into the Thermosphere with predictions for over 100 vertical flight levels up to 100,000 feet, including convection, icing, turbulence, visibility, cloud cover, cloud tops and ceilings, wind speed and direction, and more. For space weather, we monitor and predict electron density, neutral air density, chemistry, and more. EarthCast provides real-time alerting for numerous hazards, including DVE, hail, volcanic ash, turbulence, lightning, and flooding.
