" We have taken a unique approach to weather forecasting and analysis," says Jay Southerland, CEO of MetLoop, which officially launched Jan. 25. " We have re-pur posed militar y-grade technol- og y for the civilian market, bringing a new level of accuracy and speci- ficity that does not currently exist w ith many other weather-technol- og y providers." W hat differentiates MetLoop from other weather-forecast- ing companies is this: Severe weather forecasts and alerts are ty pically broad based, covering large geograph- ical areas that include many people and buildings that are not impacted despite receiving weather alerts. T his is because the alerts are based on algorithms that are not designed to be highly specific and often miss smaller weather events altogether. MetLoop is the only company that only uses meteorologists who are both militar y-trained and Next- Generation R adar (NEXR A D)-certified. MetLoop works in conjunction w ith a variety of industries and companies, includ- ing insurance companies, building contractors, utility and energ y compa- nies, manufacturers, and suppliers.
