METEORAGE operates a lightning detection network which allowsto continuously monitor the formation and movement of thunderstorms in Europe.

Thanks to this real time observation, it is possible to alert a site of the imminent arrival of the thunderstorm in order to prevent the lightning risk for people and assets.

The operating principle consists in creating a monitoring area around the site and alerting it as soon as some lightning flashes are detected in this perimeter. Afterwards, the site is informed once the activity has stopped inside the area.
