Highlights

  • Industry-leading instruments to monitor water, weather & environment

    Industry-leading instruments to monitor water, weather & environment

    Over the past 60 years our company has been designing and manufacturing professional-grade hydrometeorological instruments and accessories like towing systems and cable ways for safer recording of water measurements.

    Our sensor product portfolio now offers innovations that monitor water quality and even hail damage. We ensure a seamless flow of accurate & precise data collected under some of the harshest weather to reliable data systems for quality control, data visualization, analysis and decision support.

  • Field data mobile app

    Field data mobile app

    Make the most of every minute in the field.

    A mobile app guides a field tech through site-specific requirements to accurately record data or perform in-field calculations.

    This app supports work in online as well offline mode or without network access.

    When the device is reconnect to a network, field data transfers to a long-term, secure platform for immediate review and use.

  • Hydrometric data management

    Hydrometric data management

    Automate data processing in your workflow to increase usability and value from all the information you collect and integration with forecasting efforts.

    Data quality monitoring and custom alerts ensure efficient QA / QC, regulatory compliance and continual improvements.

    Extensive visualization options and analytical tools ease analysis and reporting from a long-term and secure platform.

  • Dam safety web visualization

    Dam safety web visualization

    The hydrometric data management functionality also applies to the array of data from piezometers, inclinometers and boat survey transects. Automate structural monitoring calculations that assess dam safety and alert staff to risks.

    Web visualization enhances the maintenance and monitoring of flood and seismic hazards as users can overlay real-time measurements, cross-sectional plots, field data, and even offline data sources.

  • Environmental forecasting suite

    Environmental forecasting suite

    High resolution, extremely precise environmental forecasts and observations are delivered within a web browser to further inform operations and maintenance teams prior to storms.

    Use the same high-quality raster data for post-event analysis.

    Radar animation, 3-15 day forecasts, and easily configured alarms provide lead time ahead of reservoir drawdowns.

    Working groups and individual users can customize dashboards with the most relevant data and most efficient displays.

  • Operator-informed optimization

    Operator-informed optimization

    The intuitive web platform empowers hydro operators to define challenges, prioritize objectives, and generate the best possible schedules that optimize water use and power generation.

    The patent-pending RTO modeling service provides feasible short, middle and long-range schedules in order to most efficiently use constrained water and energy resources.
