Meet the Next Generation of Radar Satellite Technology

Tomorrow.io’s second generation radar satellites redefine the boundaries of space radar technology, delivering accurate and detailed insights into precipitation with unprecedented spatial coverage at all times of day.

The Dawn of Space-Based Weather Radar at Scale

Launching in 2024, our eight Tomorrow R3-10 satellites are like smart eyes in the sky. They employ a novel radar design to monitor Earth’s atmosphere, oceans, and land, promising improved real-time characterization and prediction capabilities for weather around the globe.

Building upon the successes of the Pathfinder series, these satellites introduce Tomorrow.io’s proprietary scanning antenna technology, delivering enhanced weather intelligence with wide coverage to your fingertips.

High-resolution 3D Volumetric Scans

Detailed cloud and precipitation scans across a 400 km ground swath, with 250 m vertical and 5 km horizontal resolution sufficient to resolve individual storm cells.

Enhanced Coverage

Our proprietary scanning antenna technology enables an impressive scan range of +/- 20 deg / 400 km swath while maintaining very high measurement sensitivity.

In-Depth Surface Characterization

Detailed 2D maps of land and ocean surfaces, yielding valuable data like near-surface wind speed over ocean and land surface information (e.g., snow extent, soil moisture).

Tomorrow.io’s Pathfinders are just the beginning. Combined with radar and sounder-equipped satellites, our multi-sensor constellation will revolutionize weather forecasting
