2021 in Meteopress - Covid brought the C-band radar!
Our vision is to protect people everywhere from the effects of climate change and dangerous weather.
We are developing affordable carbon-neutral C-band weather radar solutions deployable anywhere in the world and for any business model. While our pricing is extremely competitive, the quality of our data is at least equal or better than competitors’.
To increase precision, we have developed the Meteopress AI Nowcasting software, which enables us to improve short-term forecasts (nowcasting) by up to 42% and medium-range forecasts by 19%.
Radars and AI nowcasting are integrated into an automatic AI warning system (AI-SWAPS, or Severe Weather Alert Protection System). Our warnings regularly outperform state-issued warnings in highter hit-rate and lower false-positive criteria.
We are very happy with the radar project results so far and there are plans to continue and expand on it in the near future.
We have been working with Meteopress in Czech Republic and Slovakia for many years, they provide their top severe weather warning system to our clients and keep developing it. They are a partner we can rely on.
We are very happy with both the cooperation with Meteopress/Meteosense and the radar itself. Its value for money and performance exceeded our expectations.
When switching to professional meteorological show on our tv, the best thing that could have happened was to meet Michal Najman from Meteopress. We have been very satisfied with their services for 13 years.
Meteopress is proud to introduce a fully Solid-State SW based C-band, X-band and S-band weather radars.
They feature Dual-Polarization, Doppler and 3D Volumetric scanning. Single platform that allows to choose between the band.
Easy to install, light and rigid structure, ultra low life-cycle costs thanks to advanced GaN solid-state power amplifiers operating in C-Band, X-band, S-band frequencies range with COTS components and fully remote autonomous operation.

Solving the challenges of weather nowcasting using custom-made in-house developed AI techniques, neural networks and data processing methods with low computational resources requirements.
The most precise radar echo nowcasting model backed by in-house neural network. Proven increase of accuracy in cell location and intensity prediction overperforming industry-standard models by a significant margin.
The world's first public geo-stationary satellite realtime nowcasting.
NWP model output generated by AI powered model from NWP ensamble runs input. Increased NWP prediction precision by 14%.
Once you get great radar data, you can have great radar prediction. You can add satellite prediction, station data and feed it to our AI Ensemble Nowc. to utilise the combined power of NWP Model Ensemble data and neural networks, you are only one step away from an Automatic Warning System.
Our warning systems automatically evaluates the outputs from all prediction systems and triggers warnings ahead of the dangerous weather events.
Warnings are then delivered to users via API or bespoke weather Apps.
A disruptor in the radar industry, C-band, S-band, and X-band Dual-polarization Doppler weather radars are the most important division of the company with more than 35 radars deployed in the last 7 years. Meteopress’s radars have the lowest carbon footprint on the market. With a lightweight construction design and very low power consumption, they can be powered by solar. That all brings the costs of radar deployment to the minimum. Thanks to agile development, we can offer virtually unlimited capacity and very short delivery times. A strong in-house AI team is bringing previously impossible products, with super-precise precipitation nowcasting, satellite nowcasting, ENS NWP AI forecasting. Meteopress AI-REN SW can solve other issues as well, fill the gaps in radar composites, fill the blockages by physical obstacles in radar coverage, and solve the wind turbine disturbances. Trusted by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, ZAMG, Austrian weather service, the Czech government, and dozens of other clients from diverse fields of insurance, media, government meteorology, and energetics. Meteopress is based in the Czech Republic and has a 30 years history of reliable operations.
