Whether you are the base commander in charge of operations to keep soldiers and visitors safe or you support airfield operations keeping ground crews and equipment safe, we're here to support you.
Lightning, high winds, extreme heat, hail, and other severe weather conditions can endanger and disrupt various aspects of military operations. Whether it's an outdoor training operation or a group of visitors on base, you want to ensure outdoor safety from severe weather. U.S. military facilities across the country rely on Earth Networks to support operations.
We support commercial airports and airlines worldwide with cutting-edge lightning detection and alerting technology to minimize weather-related downtime and false alerts. We also work with local and regional aviation authorities in the U.S. and abroad to bring in lightning detection, weather monitoring and alerting technology that protects people and assets on the ground and in the air.
From supporting mission critical space launches and aviation operations at NASA's Wallops Island Flight Facility to keeping visitors and base personnel safe from severe weather at the U.S. Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, we keep our eyes on the skies so you can focus on the mission.
Every operation is different. We'll work with you to deploy a professional-grade weather solution tailored to meet your needs.
In addition to our work with various agencies of the U.S. Federal Government, we work with U.S. Army bases across the country to secure outdoor spaces. Here are a few of the different agencies we support.
The Department of Defense has trusted Earth Networks total lightning network data to help support a number of its weather sensitive, mission critical branches such as the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, and the U.S. Army.
The FAA uses our total lightning network data as an input to synthetic radar in their Offshore Precipitation Capability currently being used throughout the Caribbean where little to no radar exists.
With 1,700+ sensors covering 100+ countries, our network is the most extensive and technologically-advanced global lightning detection network. Our ability to monitor in-cloud lightning in addition to cloud-to-ground lightning sets us apart – enabling faster, more localized storm alerts and advanced early warning of severe weather like tornadoes, downbursts and hail.
Clear airfields and open spaces well before the storm arrives. Move to protect assets and weather-sensitive equipment with advanced early warning and outdoor mass notification systems. Minimize downtime with countdown clocks and all-clear notifications that take the guess work out of when to safely resume operations.
Sferic Maps is the ultimate web-based weather visualization, monitoring and alerting tool for meteorologists and operational support squadrons. This software, available on desktop and mobile, features an extensive library of preset weather observation layers including, Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA), Earth Networks Total Lightning, NWS Alerts, precipitation, wind speed and direction, heat index and WGBT, radar, and more.
We know you're not sitting behind a desk all day. When you're out in the field or just on-the-go, our mobile alerts and applications ensure you have access to the latest hyperlocal weather information at all times.
Built to withstand and measure all kinds of threats, our weather station quietly records crucial information about the environment and turns it into the most useful data around–yours. Whether you’re monitoring heat and humidity levels or measuring rainfall totals, access to real-time, local weather intelligence is critical.
From forecasting, to nowcasting, to real-time alerts that let you know when to clear your facility or make changes to your operations, we have you covered.
