Lockheed, NVIDIA Demonstrate AI-Enabled Digital Twin for Global Weather Monitoring

Lockheed Martin and NVIDIA demonstrated an artificial intelligence-enabled digital twin prototype designed to support the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s global weather monitoring mission.

The two companies embarked on the Earth and Space Observing Digital Twin program in 2022, intending to create a solution that can process live streams of weather data, analyze information using AI and machine learning and display current global environmental conditions from space- and ground-based sensors. The digital twin uses Lockheed’s OpenRosetta3D software and the NVIDIA Omniverse platform to build applications that aggregate data in real time, advance 4D visualizations and display information in a digestible format.

The demo proved to NOAA and other agencies that AI can be used to display accurate and high-definition satellite and sensor data, Lockheed said Tuesday.

Other companies are also working with NOAA for environmental and weather data delivery.

In January, Alpha Omega Integration and Spire Global won separate contracts for various tasks. Alpha Omega secured a potential five-year, $43 million contract to provide tools, systems and services to support the National Centers for Environmental Information’s mission of storing and sharing environmental information while Spire Global won an eight-month, $9.4 million task order for radio occultation data delivery supporting weather forecasts, space weather models and climate research, among other missions.
