Lightning

A strikingly global approach to lightning detection.

LightningLightning causes an estimated $4-5 billion dollars in property damage each year. To protect the assets of our clients in the U.S. government, media, transportation, energy/utility, recreation, manufacturing and consumer media industries, WSI has created the world’s most expansive network of sensors to monitor and record lightning events. Our partner in this venture is TOA Systems, Inc., a preeminent manufacturer of integrated lightning detection and warning systems. Together we have developed The United States Precision Lightning Network™ (USPLN™), The North American Precision Lightning NetworkSM (NAPLNSM) and The Global Lightning Network® (GLN®).

These advanced lightning detection networks provide the highest quality, most accurate real-time and archived lightning stroke data thanks to hundreds of sensors covering North and South America, Asia, Australia, and Europe. Lightning detection data is also available for oceanic and other continental regions.
