A.L.A.S. – Airport Lightning Alert System®
The automated alerting service dedicated to airport operators, for the management of ground activities and safety.
ALERT AND NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
The services associated with the monitoring network allows the user to recive timely alerts and notifications, according to IEC 62793, upon the presence and evolution of the storm to support decisions in the management of operational activities and safety.
AUTOMATED ALERTS VIA E-MAIL/SMS
The alerting system allows the user to set up a distribution list for warning messages (both displayed on the platform and sent via e-mail or SMS) when thunderstorms develop in the vicinity of the areas of interest.
REDUCTION IN SUSPENSION TIME
Lightning monitoring allows the user to minimise downtime for ground operations, reducing the organizational and economic impact caused by thunderstorms.
ADVANCED DATA AND SERVICES
REAL-TIME LIGHTNING DATA
The network, operated by Météorage, detects all types of lightning (CG – Cloud to Ground and IC – Intra Cloud) with high accuracy (about 100 m) and efficiency, in order to obtain timely and detailed monitoring of thunderstorms.
The weather data is analyzed in real time to generate precise tracking of the path of the thunderstorm and its intensity through each life stage.
A dedicated algorithm, based on the behaviour of the storm and precise indicators, provides the forecast of the direction and speed of movement of the thunderstorm.
The dedicated platform displays all the information on a complete and intuitive software accessible also from mobile devices.
The monitoring network extends globally, thanks to the presence of a large number of sensors with a wide range of coverage.
API FEED AND HISTORICAL DATA
Lightning and storm data can also be provided via a self-updating feed or via dedicated APIs for integration into customer systems or applications. An historical data archive is also available.
