Tomorrow.io an American “weather intelligence and climate security” company has ordered two small satellites from manufacturer Astro Digital. The satellites will be radar-equipped and are to be based on the Astro Digital Corvus-XL platform. Due to launch in late-2022 the satellites are intended to improve global precipitation data and therefore weather forecasting models.

The company has plans for a potential future fleet of approximately 30 such satellites to enhance the quality of its data.

 

At the end of March 2021 the company announced it had closed a Series D funding round raising US$77 million. This brought its total money raised to US$185 million since its formation in 2016.
