Supernal takes minority stake in TruWeather Solutions

Supernal LLC has announced a minority investment in TruWeather Solutions to leverage its weather data analytics and forecasting technology in Supernal’s electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle and operations testing.  Supernal is developing its eVTOL vehicle for 2028 entry into service.

As part of the investment, Supernal reports it will pilot TruWeather’s V360° software-as-a-service product in the company’s vehicle and surrounding operations to collect and integrate real-time distributed sensor weather data. According to a press release “V360° will provide Supernal with a comprehensive view of low-altitude weather and enable the company to more accurately assess and predict weather conditions at critical locations and along flight paths. Supernal plans to deploy the TruWeather system in its future launch markets and make the infrastructure available to the broader AAM community.

“V360° can deliver eVTOL operators wind and weather updates every 15 minutes with tens of meters of grid resolution at and around vertiports. This model has 1 kilometer or better resolution along flight corridors and captures the effects that buildings have on wind flow, which is critical when flying in urban environments. By comparison, the best data available in commercial aviation today is 2.5 kilometer resolution and does not provide for urban building disrupted wind flows.

“TruWeather has spent five years developing the next generation of micro-weather data collection technology and analytics for AAM and conducts R&D at Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) test ranges – sanctioned by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) – in four states across the U.S.”
