Weather affects everyone. That’s why Panasonic Weather Solutions is developing new technology that’s revolutionizing the way weather data is collected.
Current weather balloon technology is nearly 70 years old. These balloons are launched just twice a day from a handful of locations due to air traffic restrictions. By placing weather sensors on individual airplanes, Panasonic will be able to collect much more information at multiple points in time from various locations in the world.
This technology will help airlines optimize flight patterns effectively helping them save fuel while minimizing how much CO2 is released into the air.
How does this affect passengers? With optimized flight patterns and weather data, the 4 million passengers that interact with Panasonic-supported airlines each day should experience fewer delays and more enjoyable flight conditions.
