The latest weather at our Head Office with the NAVatHOME weather station.

NAVatHOME Australia Weather Station

Our Weather station is located on the south west coast of Western Australia, and fully exposed to the incoming weather. We will use this real world data alongside our theory to demonstrate how it all works as the Southern Weather Patterns move across Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands.

Of course, having access to real time weather is great for anyone local planning a trip down the coast, about to go fishing, or aiming to pull out the windsurfing or kitesurfing gear.

We have finally finished our radio course. This ended up in a bit of a personal test for ourselves as we started to look at what the available technology could offer us. We started with creating detailed simulators for radio function and then this moved on rapidly to start looking at the use of speech recognition technology in a web app. When we started, we never realised how new the technology was and so we found that we were actually developing the software beyond what was currently even considered. We never planned to push the technology so far, but we ended up with a system that now interacts with you as you make your radio calls. When we started looking around, we coul not find anyone who has come as close to this level of technology. We are very proud of it, and we are offering it for FREE for a limited time only on request with no obligation.
