Part of the Baron Group of Companies, WxWorx supplies both hardware and software solutions for onboard weather to the aviation, marine, and emergency management industries. Founded in 2003, WxWorx is the exclusive weather data provider for XM WX Satellite Weather, a trusted information source for professional pilots and mariners. Collecting high-quality weather data from a variety of government and private sources, WxWorx combines that weather information with its patented algorithms and processes to ensure XM WX customers receive the most accurate and timely data available.

WxWorx’s parent company, Baron Services, was founded 19 years ago with a mission to develop life-saving weather tools and is a leading developer of ultra-sophisticated weather technologies for the broadcast industry. Its technologies such as radar display combined with street-level storm tracking and the detection of dangerous twisting winds were major developments for the company, and its display products, VIPIR and FasTrac, have become household names.
