k-NOW-casting - Innovation in rainfall related risk monitoring

k-NOW-casting is a disruptive Decision Support Service - DSS, to manage emergencies caused by extreme weather events, based on the analysis of Smart Rainfall System – SRS’ measurements. SRS is the only nowcasting system (IT patented, EU pending) providing real-time spatial rainfall maps on a detailed scale, by means of the analysis of satellite television’s signals, received by commercial parabolic antennas. Real-time evidences on hydrological risks related to intense rainfall are provided integrating SRS with other real-time sensor networks (monitoring e.g. rivers’ level and landslides).
