SONA allows capturing, classifying and processing all-sky images, covering 180°+ field of view. Its robust design with compact dimensions, a complete new embedded system and new internal sensors for different applications provides high reliability in harsh environmental conditions.
Its robust design, with a totally complete new external case made of highly durable materials and their new internal sensors for daylight or night applications, allows to reach an accurate output level in cloud observation and analysis.
The system captures HDR images of the entire sky. After the caption, the images are processed as well as the percentage of cloud coverage apart from other additional data.
The new Web interface allows connection to the system from all over your network or from outside.
Easy integration: folder based database, .csv/.json file format, link to last picture, etc… for immediate connection to your dashboard or external web to data sharing.
SONA can be customized on-demand depending on the type of application for its final deployment such as, cloud reporting in airports, cloud nowcasting which can be combined with satellite images for PV plants, CSP and CPV, sky watching in astronomy, cloud observation for tourism industry, etc.
