Synergie

SYNERGIE - The ultimate decision making tool for forecasting and warnings

MAIN PURPOSE

Gather, visualize, interact, and add value to all meteorological data on a single workstation

FOR WHO?

Meteo France International has co-developed SYNERGIE with senior IT specialists and meteorologists from Météo-France (the French National Met Service).

This makes SYNERGIE the best fitted decision making tool for National Meteorological Services whatever their size and organization, from national headquarters to regional or specialized forecasting centers.

SYNERGIE includes dedicated functions for all forecasting positions:

  • General forecasting
  • Nowcasting and met support to specific events (sports ...)
  • Aviation Forecasting
  • Short, middle and long range forecasting
  • Marine forecasting
  • Forecasts for media
  • Training
  • Research
  • Early warnings
  • Military operations and mobile units


As SYNERGIE is a highly modular tool, it can also answer the specific needs of professionals from weather sensitive economic sectors such as agriculture, energy providers, as well as off-shore oil platforms.
