WeatherTec is committed to mitigate severe droughts and bring additional freshwater in an environmentally friendly way to Hundreds of Millions of people.
WeatherTec has developed a unique technology to initiate and enhance rainfall even in semi-arid regions making it the world’s largest additional fresh water reservoir. It is a green leading- edge technology for more natural precipitation, just by mimicking the sun’s ionization process.
Command & Control
The WeatherTec Command & Control Room is the heart of the system monitoring and operating all ionization sites. Meteorologists, climatologists, IT experts, atmospheric physicists and engineers work together to prepare the best forecast to ensure real time control of the operations. Customized high-resolution weather models are applied in collaboration with local meteorological institutions.

Prof. Dr. Anton Mangstl is an agricultural scientist and is a specialist in agrarian informatics and knowledge management.
Examples of his breakthrough projects are the development of the information system for plant cultivation (ISPLANZ), the development of planning and forecasting models and is the founder of the Society for Computer Science in Agriculture (GIL).
Prof. Mangstl was Director of the Center for Agricultural Documentation and Information (ZADI), the knowledge and technology transfer agency of the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection.
As FAO Deputy Director of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations he was responsible for information and knowledge management, e-learning and capacity building.
Later he became Deputy President and Professor of the German-Jordanian University, the largest German scientific institution abroad (4,500 students) until 2016.
Professor Dr. Jörg Imberger was Professor of Environmental Engineering at the University of Western Australia, Perth and Chair of its Centre for Water Research. He is an avid environmentalist who is also a member of the Scientific Advisory Board for Earthwatch.
In 1996 he received the "Stockholm Water Prize", also known as "Water Nobel Prize". Jörg Imberger is seen as a pioneer in the research focused on water movements in rivers, lakes and coastal regions. The most respectful commentators talk about "before and after Imberger."
Imberger is a leading figure of Weathertec's "Adcademy for Climate and Water Security". Imberger received many awards and honors for his services to science and is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science (FAA), the Academy of Science of Argentina, the Institute of Engineers, Australia (FIEAust) and of the Water Academy. Since 1969 he has worked on over 200 different research projects and has had more than 300 (co-) authored publications.

Dr. Helmut Fluhrer
When Helmut saw the first documentation and presentation of the roots of the rainmaking technology in 2004, he realized that this concept would become the most important mission in his life.
Already successful in building big companies from scratch in the media world, creating technology leaders in satellite television and digital editing/ printing companies.
He especially built, starting in 1993 one of the first b-to-b on the Internet. He took on the task of further launching a company for rainmaking.
During its seven years of fieldwork, Meteo developed most valuable know how and IP, which positioned the team as the technology leaders. After an intermission, caused by fundamental research work, restructuring and new strategic orientation, Fluhrer relaunched the company in spring 2015.
As co-founder, Elena is one of the most experienced persons regarding weather modification worldwide. Starting her career in the field of disarmament and non-proliferation, Elena participated in negotiations between military, civil, scientific and environmental interest blocks concerning declassification of military know-how into civil sector.
She also collaborated with respected companies and experts around the globe and gained invaluable insights inter alia into potentials of freshwater enlargement by various technical means including weather modification on different continents.
Elena is a co-author of the article "Abstraction of Atmospheric Humidity" published in the Chapter "Water-Quality Engineering", "Treatise of Water Science", ELSIVIR, 2011
Elena supervises scientific and technical execution of WeatherTec projects.
Matt has a long career as a Financier, Entrepreneur, Government Advisor in numerous Arab and overseas countries, esp. in economic development and economic free trade and offshore zones. He was the advisor responsible of "Project U.A.E. 1" to HH Sheik Saud Bin Saqr Al Qassimi "then Crown Prince and now the ruler of the Emirate of Ras Al Khaima".
His belief developed as he was the eyewitness of numerous non-forecasted rainfall events during the summer months at the time of "Project U.A.E. 1".
His long experience in America, the Gulf States, the Middle East and Africa, seasoned with strong management experience and in-depth knowledge of the International markets brings discipline and confidence for growth to our organization.
