Miratlas

Metering the sky
Atmospheric turbulence and cloud cover characterisation with high resolution passive sensing

Contact us

Global warming is leading to increased temperature, evaporation, and atmospheric instability.

Miratlas strives to improve our understanding of climate change by providing local information on cloud cover and atmospheric turbulence. Our unique patented instrument is designed to be easily deployed overnight and operate 24/7/365 gathering high precision and high-resolution data in real-time.

Atmospheric turbulence is critical to pollutants dispersion affecting air quality and light propagation affecting free space optical communication.

Miratlas enables the measurement of atmospheric turbulence on the global scale for the first time.
