OUR TECHNOLOGY → SCENARIOS
Every thunderstorm, or line of thunderstorms for that matter, produces a unique, corresponding “electrical footprint” at the surface and it is this electrical footprint where lightning is most likely to occur. The extent or shape of this electrical footprint depends on numerous factors such as season, pressure, wind speed, temperature, elevation, etc… and given that all of these factors can change over just a few minutes to even seconds, the electrical footprint must also change to reflect the “favorable” locations for lightning to discharge. An electrostatic field MUST be present before a lightning strike can occur between the storm cell and the ground. THOR GUARD technology provides advanced warning of when the electrical footprint is heading into your area AND when it is exiting your area, thus providing automatic notification of when to stop AND when to resume. The time-elapsed series of radar images below provides an example of how the electrical footprint associated with a thunderstorm can change over time...
