Statewide Micro-Weather Services in North Dakota for Advanced Drone Ops: TruWeather and Meteomatics

Updated: Apr 27, 2023

Commercial and military drone operators unnecessarily cancel or delay an estimated 30 percent of all drone flights. The primary cause: inaccurate weather and wind hazard predictions based on a dearth of real time low altitude weather data. Grand Sky, a commercial uncrewed aircraft system (UAS) park located in Grand Forks, North Dakota plans to change that. Grand Sky is home to Vantis, a new mission and network operations center for the state-wide beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) system in North Dakota. Grand Sky has partnered with TruWeather Solutions, a U.S. micro-weather data and analytics company and Switzerland-based Meteomatics to launch the nation’s first state-wide micro-weather services to fill this critical weather data gap and increase flight time.
