Orbital Micro Systems Hosts Inaugural Weather Intelligence Forum at
InterMET Asia 2019

Program assembles experts in big data and weather information to discuss the impending overload of earth observation data and its effects on weather-impacted decisions

Boulder, Colorado, March 20, 2019 – Orbital Micro Systems (OMS), a leader in advanced instrumentation for small satellite missions and analytic-ready earth data intelligence platforms, will host the first Weather Intelligence Forum at InterMET Asia 2019, the world’s premier weather, flood, and air quality conference. InterMET Asia is taking place March 26 through 29, 2019 at the SunTec Convention Center in Singapore.

The Weather Intelligence Forum will be presented March 28, 2019 as part of Asia Climate Week and InterMET Asia. The program brings together experts in the management, processing, and interpretation of weather data collected by satellites, terrestrial and airborne systems, and other sources, to discuss the current and near-term challenges facing weather information users such as MET offices, and industries including agriculture, insurance and reinsurance, aviation, and maritime transport.

OMS is one of many commercial enterprises launching satellites to gather earth observation data in greater volumes and lower latencies. These companies will be adding vast amounts of data to large government-operated platform datasets, and we expect this influx of raw data entering the ecosystem will overwhelm the traditional data processing systems utilized today.

The Weather Intelligence Forum is designed to bring the realities of ‘data overload’ to the forefront by involving data users and producers to build awareness and offer solutions to all participants in the ecosystem. InterMET Asia is the perfect venue for this discussion, since it attracts participants from every continent, as well as from MET offices in areas that have had limited satellite-based data and stand to benefit the most from the data generated by these new commercial satellite platforms.”

OMS is also participating in the launch of its first Global Environmental Monitoring System (GEMS) satellite April 17, 2019 from Wallops Island, Virginia. When a full complement of GEMS satellites are in orbit, the constellation will provide global weather observations at 15-minute intervals.
