Darrera is proud to announce the signature of a partnership agreement with Nowcast, the global quality leader among commercial lightning detection networks and the provider of the most precise and complete Total Lightning data all over Europe.
Darrera expands its portfolio of services in Spain and Portugal with the addition of a lightning data distribution service for all kinds of businesses, including meteorological agencies, air traffic control organizations, insurance companies, energy suppliers and telecommunication providers.
The ultra-precise lightning data is captured by Nowcast’s LINET, a large-area detection network based on innovative technology evolved from decades of research. Thanks to LINET, small as well as large private and public companies get detailed numerical lightning information in real time. This data can then be imported into the user’s systems and combined with further data sources. In addition to standard information pertaining to the location, time and stroke current, LINET reliably differentiates between intra-cloud strokes and cloud-to-ground strokes, and even ascertains the height of intra-cloud strokes.
