Oceanit's 3-D ceilometer has the advantage of measuring an area of at least 10 miles in diameter, compared with the 6-inch-diameter area the current system uses for its data collection, which is not comprehensive enough during rapid cloud movement, Sullivan said.
"The problem is the current Automated Surface Observation System used to monitor weather historically has been bad in conditions of rapidly changing weather,"

"You go out there and you hit your buttons, and you kind of wait, take a reading of the building and then based on that, you do something," Sullivan said.
The technology uses radio waves, "so it bounces off them and from that we can determine heart rate, respiration and where they are,"
