INTRODUCTION

Meteosense is a manufacturer of a small, cheap, reliable and effective weather radars.

We detect rain, storms, showers, hail, snow and any other objects in the air in the range up to 260 km.

Only a basic infrastructure is needed to run our radars – 110/230V and basic internet connection needed. Radars are easy to maintain and the data come automaticaly through simple internet interface.

The reach of our radars is up to 260 km for storms and 110 km for light rain!

1-minute image updates in 10+ vertical levels. HD resolution – 150m per pixel.

Compact weather radar is possible to install within 2-5 working days with small crew of experienced personel.

We can install on any location as long as it has electricity and internet connection.

For a fraction of the price of our competitors we are achieving results comparable to high end Doppler radars. By a recent price/performance survey, Meteosense radars are priced at around 15-35 % of the price of most of the competitors while beating them in many performance characteristics.
