Baron’s technology is designed to be user friendly and accessible to customers who might not have any meteorological background, and can be used in a variety of public safety settings such as schools, according to the company.
Baron’s Threat Net features high-resolution, customizable mapping down to street level, a full-screen interactive mode, storm vectors enabling storm tracking up to an hour in advance, and a critical weather indicator that warns users in real time of dangerous storm situations.

The Threat Net also can provide public safety information on non-weather environmental threats such as HAZMAT disasters by determining rain or wind conditions that may spread chemical spills, and toxic smoke and gasses.
