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.

Global NowCast Turbulence Prediction & Alerting

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.

Hazard Alert Notifications In-Flight

EarthCast also provides real-time alerting for flight hazards such as convection, icing, hail, volcanic ash, turbulence (with 3D views), lightning, contrails, and more.

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.

Whole Atmosphere Modeling

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.

Hydrology, Land & Sea

EarthCast provides advanced environmental modeling solutions predicting numerous hazards and reducing the impact that they have on our customers’ operations.

Precipitation Accumulation

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.

Global Surface Conditions

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.

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.

Flight Path Ending in Squall Line

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.
