LAS VEGAS, NV, July 17, 2015 — TempoQuest, Inc, a Nevada Corporation, today announced the signing of a software development contract with the University of Wisconsin and that institution’s Space Science and Engineering Center, both located in Madison, Wisconsin.
The weather software contract represents an important milestone in the completion of the AceCAST™ software application which has been demonstrated to significantly accelerate the processing time for regional weather forecasts while improving their accuracy.
“Improved weather forecast accuracy and speed, particularly at a local level, enables governments, businesses, the military, and society in general to dramatically mitigate the often catastrophic risks and extensive costs associated with unforeseen weather events,” said Ed Keible, Chief Executive Officer of TempQuest. “AceCAST™, he added, “is a game-changing forecasting innovation, which we anticipate will not only revolutionize the way regional forecasts are processed, but more importantly, provide a new dimension of security and planning confidence to those institutions and individuals whose lives and business interests will be enhanced by greater forecasting speed and accuracy.
