Our Solutions


 
 

Severe weather impacts all aspects of commercial aviation. Total lightning data provides critical advanced warning and precursory identification of severe thunderstorm cells containing dense lightning, severe icing, downward drafts and heavy turbulence in the path of aircraft to help eliminate risk to crew and passengers.

When integrated into aviation solutions, lightning data derived from our patented detection technology provides the visibility needed for in-flight and ground operation safety. In fact, the NTSB in its safety recommendation has identified the need for in-cloud and cloud-to-ground (total) lightning data for use by controllers and pilots to help ensure that planes don’t fly into dangerous thunderstorm cells. Our solutions help prevent and manage:

  • Loss of aircraft
  • Turbulence-induced crew and passenger injuries
  • Damage to aircraft from hail and lightning strikes
  • Weather-associated flight diversions
  • Ground operation incidents
