Real-time satellite thunderstorm data now available

We are happy to introduce real-time satellite thunderstorm data in proFLIGHT. The data is continously updated in our back-end systems and available to proFLIGHT users at all time.

The new RDT (Rapidly Developing Thunderstorms) layer displays current position and the state of CB-cells. It also includes a short (60  min) forecast of the development and movement for each of the cells.

As for now the coverage area is Europe, Northern Africa, Middle East, Asia (partially), Pacifics (partially) and will be extended to global coverage in the near future.

The RDT data is delivered in collaboration with Airbus Defence and Space GmbH.

This data is available from version 1.2.3
