Tempus Global Data and LSI Form Deal to Sell Weather Data to Federal Government

Press Release

August 18, 2014

Ogden and Layton – Tempus Global Data, Inc. today has entered into an agreement with Logistic Specialties, Inc. (LSI) to sell weather data to the United States Government. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The agreement has been signed by Alan Hall, chairman and CEO of Tempus Global Data, headquartered in Ogden, and Sean Slatter, CEO of LSI, headquartered in Layton.

According to Hall, Tempus has identified U.S. Government agencies as the primary customer for the first round of data that will come from a constellation of sensors flying in GEO orbit and using hyperspectral sounding to create images of the atmosphere.

"We expect to sell weather data to a wide range of government and commercial clients including airlines, energy companies and insurance underwriters,” Hall said. “Our technology has very broad reach. But the original sensors were built in cooperation with the U.S. Government and they will be our primary customer as we begin operations."

Hall believes there is "increasing and urgent demand" for an upgrade in weather technology in government circles and a "clear trend toward outsourcing orbital assets to the private sector.

Hall said Tempus selected LSI because of its decades of experience in building and retaining relationships with government agencies, its skilled team and its location near Tempus headquarters.

Tempus technology is based on the Utah State University-built Sounding & Tracking Observatory for Regional Meteorology instrument (STORM) under an exclusive agreement. It leverages the GIFTS sensor built for NASA by USU and will be flown, primarily, as a hosted payload aboard commercial telecommunications satellites.
