IBL Software Engineering
IBL Software Engineering is one of the leading companies providing meteorological communication systems. Our primary customers are aeronautical and meteorological organizations worldwide. IBL offers its customers advanced tools for monitoring, analyzing and visualizing meteorological data.
IBL Software Engineering provides complex software solutions built upon various fully interoperable systems: Visual Weather for visualizing meteorological data; Moving Weather for the automated message/file exchange; Aero Weather for easy access to complete pre-flight documentation; Discover Weather as the WIS portal; Talking Weather for the ATIS/VOLMET broadcasting; Online Weather for web-based customer services.
The systems are able to cooperate with other systems as well as establish the meteorological networking environment to connect a meteorological office to the AFTN and GTS networks, observing stations, automatic weather stations (AWS), doppler radar facilities, satellite receivers, and others.
A meteorological message switching system for the GTS network, in accordance to the WMO Manual on the GTS. The software basically performs receiving and transmitting (i.e. switching) of meteorological messages (bulletins, reports) from/to remote destinations using connected telecommunication lines. In addition it provides also a file-based routing (switching of files), bulletin compilation, real-time monitoring and various supporting services.
A visualization system for meteorological data, integrating all kings of observations, remote-sensing observations, manual forecasts, forecasting models, or nowcasting into one framework, allowing meteorologist or forecaster to analyze the weather condition, extract additional information thanks to combined display, and to provide accurate forecasts.
A software system for the support of meteorological pilot briefings by providing standardized meteorological Pre-flight Information Bulletins to inform pilots about en route situation, consisting of the technical status, meteorological situation and forecast.
A product delivery service for the automatic production of meteorological output and its electronic delivery to third parties (by e-mail, SQL-feed, FTP). The output format depends on the subsystem which is used: typically it is PDF for final products, image file formats for charts, XML for data.
An AVAS/ATIS/VOLMET system transforming meteorological information text to speech for the purpose of broadcasting at airports. The system uses computer synthesis and therefore is very flexible in broadcast changes.
A satellite receiving system for the MSG meteorological satellite broadcast via the EUMETCast stream using the DVB-S technology. It receives satellite images in SEVIRI format and decodes them into GRIB for further use in Visual Weather. Extracted images can cover limited area, or can be re-projected to another projection. Alternatively, image format can be set for exporting (such as JPG or PNG).
A software system for metadata and data management, discovery, access, retrieval and automated distribution, compliant with WMO Information System (WIS) standards and capable to act as GISC, DCPC or NC node in the WIS network.
High performance computing with state of the art local area numerical weather prodiction (NWP) models.
