In this contribution, we give a high-level overview of the physics behind our technology, the technical capabilities of our stations and the accuracy of our sensors. In particular, we emphasize our unique ability to detect hail. Evidence from laboratory and field experiments demonstrates our success in detecting and measuring hailstone impacts separated by as little as 10 milliseconds. This measurement includes hailstone momentum and angle of impact.
We also discuss our deployment footprint, which currently includes micronets in Kansas City, Dallas, Denver, and St. Louis. Our deployments cover the highest population centers of these metro areas. Stations are spaced every one to five kilometers. Blanketing a metro area in this manner allows us to determine when and where hail fell and thereby assess the potential for hail-related damage from the storm.
