PlanetiQ has created the most advanced satellite weather sensor ever to exist in a such a small package. What makes our data more reliable? Unlike other space-based sensors, PlanetiQ's 'Pyxis' sees through clouds and storms, routinely penetrating all the way down to the Earths' surface - where weather matters most.
