About us

1-20 Dec 2002, Teltow
In close cooperation with the Chair of Atmospheric Chemistry and Air Quality of the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus and the Green Tech GmbH + Co. KG WEATHER TECHNOLOGIES is carrying out a measuring campaign in foggy regions in Brandenburg.

12-19 Sep 2002, IAA, Hannover 
In cooperation with the Adam Opel AG, WEATHER TECHNOLOGIES participates as exhibitor at the IAA Commercial Vehicles '02 fair in Hannover from 12 to 19 September 2002. At the stand C01 in hall 12, WEATHER TECHNOLOGIES presents new design studies for the mobile fog disposal plant. With this cooperation, the Adam Opel AG wants to promote promising and innovative business ideas around the subject of cars, as well as to establish partnerships in time with future costumers. The cooperation is opportune since the commercial vehicle Movano by Opel might be suitable as a flexible carrier platform for the fog disposal plant by WEATHER TECHNOLOGIES.

9 Jul 2002, TU-Founders Fair, Berlin
Despite the outside temperature of 35 °C, more than 250 interested visitors came to the exhibition stand of WEATHER TECHNOLOGIES in the patio of the University of Technology Berlin on the occasion of the 2nd TU-Founders Fair with altogether 44 exhibitors. The presentation also comprised the new concepts of the product design of the fog disposal plant. These were realized by the designers Frank Hofmann and Cornelius Schmitt in cooperation with Prof. Helmut Staubach from the Applied University of Arts Berlin Weißensee. Among the visitors, there were more than 150 business, political, and administrative representatives.

18 Nov 2001, n-tv
On 18 Nov 2001 at 11:15 am and 08:15 pm, the television station n-tv transmits a report on WEATHER TECHNOLOGIES in the framework of the Business Week Entrepreneurs Show Docu.

9 Sep 2001, n-tv
WEATHER TECHNOLOGIES won the Business Week Entrepreneurs Show of the TV-station n-tv in September 2001. Thus, our business model successfully asserted itself against the Icetrack AG Nürnberg. The decision was made by the Famous Angel Klaus Günther as well as the specialists of the A. T. Kearney business consulting, the venture capital company IVC, the private bank Sal. Oppenheim and US-technology companies Cisco Systems and Sun Microsystems. The program was transmitted on 9 September 2001, at 11:15 am and at 08:15 pm.

29 Mar 2001, StartUp, Berlin
WEATHER TECHNOLOGIES is price-winner of the founding contest StartUp Berlin/Brandenburg 2001. The price was presented to Felix Elbing in the Kulturbrauerei in Berlin by Wolfgang Branoner, the Berlin senator of economy and managing directors of the Landesbank Berlin. The price is endowed with 20.000 DM.

15 Nov 2000, Hofolding near Munich
A measuring campaign was carried out from October to November 2000, south of Munich in the environs of Hofolding. A mobile fog disposal plant and measuring equipment were used. This made it possible to quickly and flexibly change the location. However, due to the warm and sunny autumn, only a few fog events occurred.

2 Oct 2000, Berlin
In the past few months, the plant for fog disposal by dry ice blasting was optimized. Through constructive changes of the blasting nozzles and of the metering system, the strinking distance of the dry-ice grains in the fog could be increased. To determine the speed and the diameter of the particles in the free jet, a high-speed video measuring technology was used. The achievable particle speeds were closely under the sonic speed.

29 Feb 2000, ARTE
On 29 February 2000, the tv-station ARTE transmits a report on WEATHER TECHNOLOGIES in the european scientific journal Archimedes titled "Der Nebelfresser" (The Fog-Devourer). The program was rebroadcast on 1 March 2000 at 02:30 pm on ZDF.

11 Nov 1999, Berlin-Adlershof
A very successful field experiment was carried out on fog disposal with dry ice blasting in a cold and foggy November night in Berlin, with a visibility below 50 m. The experiment was very impressive for the research group around Prof. Dr. Detlev Möller, who set up the plant and measurement technology in the scientific park in Berlin-Adlershof since the fog was almost completely disposed of after less than 5 minutes in a diameter of nearly 200 m.

22 Oct 1999, Cottbus-Drewitz
The research group around Dipl.-Ing. Felix Elbing, Prof. Dr. Detlev Möller and Dipl.-Phys. Matthias Ulbricht carried out a measuring campaign of several weeks on the Cottbus-Drewitz airport. A fog disposal plant with dry ice blasting was realized for this end and an extensive meteorological measuring technology was set up. The measuring technology comprised two LWC sensors, a visibility sensor, temperature and humidity sensors as well as a wind sensor.
