TempoQuest – A GEO Satellite Weather Instrument and Data Provider.

ALLENTempoQuest – A GEO Satellite Weather Instrument and Data Provider.

TempoQuest, TQI, is a “weather software as a service” company established to meet the need for faster, more accurate weather forecasts. Today, TQI is in the process of developing unique software, which will deliver next-generation weather forecasts to commercial users and government agencies around the world. Development efforts are currently underway with the time to first release estimated to be 18 months.

TempoQuest’s suite of software solutions are being designed to run on graphic processor unit accelerators (GPUs) instead of CPUs, NVIDIA. This will dramatically increase the speed and accuracy of analysis. Though GPU accelerators are currently in use for other ‘big data’ applications, the technology has not yet been applied to comprehensive weather data analysis.

NVIDIA Corporation has committed to providing TempoQuest with support and assistance, including , technical support on application engineering, hardware and software integration as well as marketing, sales and distribution assistance for the TQI’s GPU forecasting product.

As currently practiced, satellite sensors, drones, radar, etc., will continue to collect global weather data. TempoQuest will then process this data and provide it to today’s major specialist weather companies, such as The Weather Company, AccuWeather, and others. For several of their high-value end users, like commodity traders, insurance firms, power utilities, major agricultural companies, etc., speed and accuracy are critical to the success of their businesses and an extremely valuable asset.

The expenses for this business are relatively modest as the main cost is continued development and maintenance of the software. Sales channels are current commercial providers of weather forecasts. Therefore, the business has inherently high operating leverage and each incremental user is highly profitable.

TempoQuest, Inc., a New Company Developing Advanced,
Regional, Weather Forecasting Software Technology, Established by
Experienced Atmospheric Research and Development Team

LAS VEGAS, NV, DECEMBER 18, 2014 — A veteran meteorological management team today announced establishment and initial funding for a new company focused on significantly improving the speed and accuracy of regional weather forecasts.

“TempoQuest,” the new company, is developing proprietary computer software that according to Edward A. Keible, Jr., Executive Chairman, CEO and co-founder, “will dramatically accelerate the speed of processing existing Weather Regional Forecasting (WRF) data, resulting in dramatically shortened weather forecast times and greatly enhanced forecast accuracy.”

Joining Mr. Keible in the new venture as Principal Technical Advisor is Dr. Allen Huang, a distinguished scientist from the Space Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin, and Eugene P. Pache, Jr. who will serve as President and Chief Operating Officer. All three of the company’s principals have previous experience developing and managing atmospheric weather data acquisition and reporting technologies for commercial ventures on a global scale.

“A major disruption to commerce is weather, and fast, accurate regional forecasting is the critical solution to mitigating those disruptions, as well as protecting human lives and property,” said Mr. Keible. “TempoQuest’s first software solution, called AceCAST™, will improve current forecasting model speeds by a factor greater than 10 times,” he explained, adding that the company expects the product to be available worldwide by 2016.

“To augment the seed funding our launch team has invested, we’re currently seeking outside investor participation, and will announce shortly the completion of strategic partnerships with several leading technology providers in the chip manufacturing and processing applications areas,” he said.

About TempoQuest, Inc.
