Detection + correction of measurement errors = 2 patents
Short-term weather forecasts are an essential source of information for tactical planning in air traffic management. Weather radar, Meteosat images and local weather observations provide information on the thunderstorm situation, precipitation, risk of icing and visibility. Digital image processing helps detect artefacts and coverage gaps in weather radar images, and eliminate or supplement them using Meteosat images. The analysis system serves to improve the short-term forecasts in meteorology.
The outstanding research activities resulted in 2 patents: Method for Detecting Measuring Errors or Artefacts in Weather Radar Images (2015) and Method for Completing and Correcting Digital Weather Radar Images (2016).
