Natural disasters cost billions of dollars every year. They interrupt business, they destroy property — and that’s nothing compared to the human toll of thousands of lives lost. Traditional weather satellites, in orbit thousands of miles above our planet’s surface, can help predict where a hurricane is headed, they don’t have the power to tell us what’s really happening on the ground. That’s where Understory comes in. Its revolutionary technology can see under the clouds, offering weather data and analytics that simply do not exist anywhere else. Knowing what’s happening on the ground means insurance providers can fast-track claims for customers, utilities can see how temperature affects dispersion of energy and farmers can know precise rainfall totals in their fields. Understory’s sensors can detect everything from rainfall to heat index, providing a rich understanding of daily weather events.
