Safety is a chief priority for airports around the world. Vaisala’s Thunderstorm Manager for aviation provides the data airport officials need to make operational decisions that both enhance passenger and personnel safety and keep downtime to a minimum during severe lighting events.
Thunderstorm Manager can be accessed via desktop or mobile device from any location with internet access. Automated alerts can be sent by email, HTTPS, and SMS to multiple email addresses, devices, or phone numbers. The alerting functionality easily integrates with web-to-audio and visual solutions to quickly alert outdoor workers of hazardous conditions.
Thunderstorm Manager is built on NLDN and GLD360, the most trusted lightning detection networks in the world and relied up on by the U.S. Armed Forces, National Weather Service, the Federal Aviation Administration, and many large commercial organizations.
The versatile display options allow both cloud-to-ground and in-cloud lightning representation, with data updates every 30 seconds. The data also includes information on the lightning polarity, magnitude of each strike, and creates a color-scaled time stamp to visualize the storm’s path.
