Critical decisions made easy

The Total Lightning Network is a key consideration across many industries. If your business or supply chain operates out in the open or in the air, your company could be at risk.

Visualise approaching storms as our customisable GIS system, Stormtracker, plots lighting strikes across your site and infrastructure. This enables enhanced understanding of the potential risk inherent in each severe weather system. Personal push notifications give users real-time severe weather and lightning alerts, based on their phone’s GPS position, enhancing their awareness of personal risk.

Lightning strike history is archived for over 5 years, enabling you to extract the reportable data required for risk assessments or insurance claims.
