New partnership brings weather intelligence tech Down Under

Australian environmental services company Aeeris has announced that it has signed an in-market service provider agreement with The Tomorrow Companies (Tomorrow.io) — a US-based company empowering organisations to thrive in the face of increasing climate volatility through advanced weather intelligence technology.

Aeeris is the parent company of Early Warning Network (EWN), which operates an early warning and notification system used by some of Australia’s biggest insurers and councils. Offering warnings to mitigate risk and protect people and assets, EWN fields a 24/7 monitoring team backed by proprietary technology which utilises data from throughout Australia and is said to have some of the most granular ‘real world’ climate modelling tech in the country.

Meanwhile, Tomorrow.io said it offers hyper-precise weather forecasting using AI and the world’s first commercially built weather-radar satellites, with accuracy comparable to NASA. The company’s clients include major US airlines, Google, Amazon, Microsoft and the US Air Force, with airline JetBlue finding that Tomorrow.io’s storm predictions have helped it to limit unnecessary delays and cancellations. EWN is now partnering with Tomorrow.io to become the sole reseller of the latter’s resilience platform and proprietary weather data in Australia.

Tomorrow.io employs AI and machine learning to analyse its proprietary data and models, together with precipitation data received from its growing network of radar satellites, to provide hyperlocal monitoring, automated risk mitigation workflows and unified threat visibility. Traditional alerting abilities are limited by ground-based radar locations and the distance from them, but Tomorrow.io’s satellite network is said to cover even the remotest of locations. The company’s detailed forecasting abilities are particularly beneficial in the transport and logistics sectors, where operations can cover vast distances and remote areas and can be significantly impacted by weather.

Aeeris said its collaboration with Tomorrow.io will further enhance its own offering by providing superior accuracy, reach and actionable insights for weather-related operational challenges. The partnership should strengthen Aeeris’s alerting and risk mitigation capabilities, empowering Australian businesses to proactively manage weather risks — particularly those in regional and rural areas where there are no rain gauges or radars.
