ACME AtronOMatic is a leading software application development company, with offices in Orlando, Florida, and Portland, Oregon. Since our inception in 1999, we've been developing applications that run the gamut from aviation-related web sites, providing flight tracking services to the aviation community, and to mobile applications such as MyRadar, a wildly-popular hi-tech, hi-resolution weather radar application for all of the popular mobile devices.
Years in Business
We have developed the ACME AtronOMatic technology platform to allow us to build a suite of products for the aviation, weather, and consumer sectors. Our weather radar processing technology handles several terabytes of data daily and is the engine behind several of our successful consumer products including the MyRadar application which is used by millions of consumers. Our private aviation data and advanced weather capabilities are used to provide best in class information to our users.
Generating the radar, temperature and wind imagery displayed by the MyRadar mobile apps is no easy task!
Radar Data Collection
On an average day,we continuously receive about 50 Mb/s of densely compressed radar, temperature and wind data in various binary formats.
We must ensure that we have all the data from complete, relevant radar rotations before a valid image can be produced for any given radar map tile.
To manage the complexities inherent in this process and provide on-demand radar rendering, we have built a cluster of GPU-heavy machines that allow us to very quickly filter, resample and render many hundreds of images per second, in high definition.
Let It Rain!
All of this work has put us in the unusual position of eagerly awaiting the next big rainstorm or other weather event so we can watch our systems go to work.
MyRadar is a fast, easy-to-use, weather application that displays animated weather radar around your current location, allowing you to quickly see what weather is coming your way.
Powered by the ACME AtronOMatic weather data and live radar processing platform, MyRadar has served up to the minute information to over 11 Million users. With an total monthly audience reach of more than 1 million US users, we are able to deliver highly targeted ad solutions.
