Scientific Weather Display

The Baron Lynx weather system allows you to view information collected by your meteorological network—radar imagery, forecast models, sensor reports and more—for analysis and visualization in single unified hub.

Flexibility is key. While the system can naturally be used for operational nowcasting and forecasting, advanced graphical capabilities allow users to prepare and deliver meteorological briefings, or use social media and the web to deliver forecasts and vital information.

Precision Pathcasting

View and examine weather with greater accuracy than ever before. Baron Lynx is your display solution when it comes to gathering the most precise analysis of daily weather conditions, from forecasting to numerical weather predictions. It comes with a wealth of meteorological data and intuitive features that help you pinpoint concerns and determine the greatest threats headed toward your region of responsibility.

Integrate Local Data

Easily ingest local meteorological data, national composites, sensor networks and more into your Lynx system, along with local IP cameras. You’ll have the clearest picture of localized weather conditions available. Best of all, Lynx systems can communicate with each other, allowing you to automatically share the sequences you create across all systems. It’s intelligent, intuitive and scalable to fit your work environment.

Intelligent Analysis

Take analysis to the next level by viewing and controlling several data products at once with the Lynx 4-panel feature. Each independent data product is displayed in its own window, but remains in-sync with location, movement, telestration, pixel query and more.

Numerical weather prediction models are fully editable in the system by staff forecasters, allowing the forecaster to make manual adjustments based on observation and knowledge before a forecast is presented. This modified forecast may then be distributed to other forecasters, the public, social media, or any other channels.

Native Language Support

Baron Lynx can be configured to support languages around the world with native language support within both the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the localized maps.

Volumetric Analysis

See inside a storm with Baron Lynx volumetric imaging technology. You can instantly take vertical slices of storm data and see what’s happening in true 3D. With Lynx volumetric tools, you’ll be able to perform RHI analysis of storms, remove lower levels of data, and use precise measurement tools for altitude and distance. Rotate and zoom into a storm’s features for a closer look, and perform an in-depth analysis radial-by-radial, identifying hidden threats and making effective decisions for your population.

Social Media Integration

Baron Lynx is your complete tool for reaching the public on social media with critical weather information. Create posts and send Lynx-made images directly to your organization’s Facebook and Twitter accounts with the WeatherShare tool. You can also create impressive .mp4 video files that can be published to social media channels with the Weather Video Producer.

The system can collect and display tweets from your relevant followers, allowing you to see first-hand how the weather is affecting the area. Schedule your posts or send them out manually. With Baron Lynx, you’ll have the tools to engage the public and warn of impeding weather conditions.

A Display Tool for Meteorological Briefings

weather briefings and TV presentation

While the map-based analysis mode of Baron Lynx can be shared with any desired audience, other capabilities are designed purely for internal and/or external presentation. Current condition and forecast visuals, manually entered or automatically populated with a forecast database, are provided as an integrated component of the system. The flexibility of the system accommodates any artwork, video or text the user chooses to include. For video presentation, a meteorologist can use the system with a Chroma key wall or touchscreen. A camera-based hand tracking option combines computer vision and machine learning to provide reliable, accurate operation directly from the presentation area.
