U.S. firm, NiMet partner on weather services
The agreement, which was announced yesterday, includes a five-year collaboration to build the Nigeria Total Lightning and Mesoscale AWS Network (NTLMAN), for early warning of severe weather.
The partnership was commemorated during a virtual Memorandum of Understanding signing ceremony from Abuja and Germantown, Maryland.
Under the agreement, Earth Networks and NiMet will deploy and operate a comprehensive early warning lightning detection network in Nigeria and jointly co-market new sources of weather and lightning data to public and private industries in Nigeria.
Precision weather stations and lightning sensors will be hosted at NiMet locations and maintained by NiMet. In addition to the network equipment, Earth Networks will also provide training and development for NiMet staff regarding use of comprehensive weather data, including real-time and historical lightning data, weather observations, sensor forecasts and live storm-tracking and alerting.
