others available on demand
Burning time Standard 265 seconds;
others available on demand
yield per g pyro at -6 °C 5.89 x 10 12
Total yield per standard flare pyro at -6 °C 8.83 x 10 14

Performance Benefits

Laboratory tests of Cloud Seeding Technologies‘ flares regularly demonstrate significantly higher yield, across a greater temperature range, than other products currently available on the market, as summarised in the following graph.

Active particles generated at different temperatures

CST‘s new burn-in-place flares include additional nozzles, minimising active substance loss through precipitation on the flare wall, and maximising overall effectiveness.

Additional Benefits

  • Increased Reliability – The fundamentally new design of CST flares gives very reliable burning intensity and allows flexible burning time selection.
  • Greater Safety – The homogeneous distribution and elastic properties of CST reagents virtually eliminate the risk of spontaneous explosions.
  • High Operating Altitude – CST burn-in-place flares can be used up to an altitude of 6 km.
  • Longer Shelf-Life – The hydrophobic compounds used in CST flares exclude the presence of water vapour. This allows significantly longer storage times than flares made using traditional compounds.
  • More Flexibility – CST flares can be configured more flexibly than competing products, giving higher efficiency throughout the entire burning time.

IKARUS · MK1

Ejectable flare

  • Aerosol-generating, pyrotechnical ejectable flare
  • Most versatile for many different use cases
  • Features our unique and highly effective cloud seeding reagent
  • Available in 26 mm and 21 mm calibres
  • Safe (non-explosive) and reliable (can be stored up to 10 years)

Use Cases

  • Rain Enhancement and Reduction
  • Hail Suppression
  • Snow Augmentation and Reduction
  • Fog Dispersal

Specifications

Flare calibre Standard 21 mm;
others available on demand
Reagent weight Standard 38 g
Burning time Standard 40 seconds;
others available on demand
yield per g pyro at -6 °C 7.1 x 10 12
Total yield per standard flare pyro at -6 °C 2.7 x 10 14

Performance Benefits

Through the use of variable aerosol particle sizes and unique nozzle technology, Cloud Seeding Technologies‘ ejectable flares have a higher yield, across a greater temperature range, than other products currently available on the market, as summarised in the following graph.

Active particles generated at different temperatures

CST ejectable flares also use the entire flare sleeve volume, further increasing the total yield per flare.

Additional Benefits

  • Best Performance in Warm Climates – In warmer climates, CST flare performance far outstrips the competition.
  • Increased Reliability – The fundamentally new design of CST flares gives very reliable burning intensity and allows flexible burning time selection.
  • Greater Safety – The homogeneous distribution and elastic properties of CST reagents virtually eliminate the risk of spontaneous explosions.
  • Unlimited Operating Altitude – There are no altitude limitations to the use of CST ejectable flares.
  • Longer Shelf-Life – The hydrophobic compounds used in CST flares exclude the presence of water vapour. This allows significantly longer storage times than flares made using traditional compounds.
  • More Flexibility – CST flares can be configured more flexibly than competing products, giving higher efficiency throughout the entire burning time.

Aircraft-Mounted Generators

We have evaluated many options for improving the characteristics of liquid generators.

The main problem of today’s liquid generators is that they produce aerosol particles which are partially ineffective. This is ultimately caused by the composition of the seeding agents which contain relatively small quantities of the substances, which produce aerosols during combustion.

By changing the composition of both the seeding agents and the generator design, we are able to achieve a much better seeding result compared to other liquid generators.

We have built working prototypes and are currently producing the first batch of generators. Please contact us for further details and references.
