Accurate, reliable, near-real time lightning data that help you prioritize damage investigations to quickly intervene before a problem escalates — anywhere in the world
Vaisala Strike Damage Potential is the world’s first solution to group lightning strokes into lightning strike points and the first to provide accurate data on the potential for damage from each lightning strike. This innovation accurately shows the precise location of the strikes—both near-real time and historical—most likely to have started a fire or caused damage.
Accurate and reliable lightning data supports organizations in power transmission and wind energy, and helps land and forestry agencies manage the impact of thunderstorms. This new, critical data can help decision makers minimize wildfire spread, and easily locate potential damage to essential assets like wind turbines and overhead power lines.
Delivers near-real time notification and prioritization, which decision makers can use to quickly intervene before a problem escalates to the point of endangering property, or threatening power generation and delivery.
Provides the timely information you need, so you spend less time and fewer resources repairing damage or containing wildfires. The data is available with a subscription from the Vaisala Global Lightning Detection Network GLD360 or National Lightning Detection Network, and is accessible through an easy-to-use interface or API.
