Don’t miss TruWeather on Dawn of Drones, as host Dawn Zoldi speaks with TruWeather CEO on the importance of micro weather data for advanced drone operations. CEO Don Berchoff has 35 years-experience in weather, aviation and logistics systems, including 24 years in the U.S. Air Force, during which he designed and led regional and global aviation weather operations centers, accumulated over 300 hours as an Airborne Meteorologist, contributed to development of the NEXGEN Weather CONOPS in 2005, and led all logistics and ground operations at Manas Air Base, Kyrgyzstan in 2007-2008.
A distinguished meteorologist and technologist, Don led the National Weather Service Directorate for Science and Technology from 2008-2012. This experience informs his efforts to seek out the best weather science and technology for the UAS industry. Don and his company focus on accelerating micro-weather sensing and prediction improvements to address UAS weather pain points. The goal is to enhance micro-weather understanding to make better airspace management and deconfliction decisions for drones and eVTOLs and increase operator mission effectiveness rates and profitability.
Don leads the ASTM F38 Weather Supplemental Data Service Provider group developing weather specifications for UAS Traffic Management and Advanced Air Mobility systems. TruWeather hopes to connect with public safety drone operators, enterprise drone operators and fleet management systems in logistics companies.
