Blitz-Detect is a South African company that is powered by nowcast, a German company that operates high precision lightning detection systems all over the world. Blitz-Detect operates the South African lightning detection system using the nowcast LINET technology to ensure that we provide fast, efficient and reliable lightning detection systems using the most sophisticated measuring techniques which is critical in developing a smart efficient lightning detection system.
The nowcast system is the physical lightning detection network comprising of an already established array of sensors all connected to a central server. nowcast's lightning detection sensors record and digitalise the lectro-magnetic waves emitted by lightning strokes with the greatest degree of precision. Detailed knowledge of atmospheric physics has allowed LINET (Lightning Detection Network) systems to develop algorithms which set the highest standards of lightning detection, tracking and prediction.
LINET view is our online user interface that our customers use for lghtning data visualization and early warnings which is setup to suite the individual requirements for each and every customer. LINET view offers various products designed to meet the different needs of our cutsomers, whether it be early warnings or historical lightning data. LINET view provides our customers with an intelligent, easy to use decision making platform that enables timeous evacuation planning and fewer false alarms.
Highest possible precision, speed and reliability in lightning detection and lightning data - this is what Blitz-Detect stands for. Why should you settle for less when nowcast can meet your requirements at a sensible price?
Opt for the best-in-class 3D-real-time technology and take advantage of the highest possible quality ranging from real-time data to historical data:
Blitz-Detect powered by nowcast offers ultra-precise German engineering.
The system essentially comprises two modules: several lightning sensors and a central server.
The lightning sensors consist of one magnetic field antenna, a GPD and a field processor.
One to two hours before a strom cell arrives at a defined alarm region, the exact time of arrival, duration and passing of the thunderstorm can be calculated.
nowcast offers a patented method to easily identify intra-cloud lightning strokes even in the low-frequency range.
This cutting-edge technology enables nowcast to identify the precise height of intra-cloud lightning strokes.
