The SCALAR system for detecting atmospheric discharges use the technology of a world wide recognized producer of measurement equipment for weather data Vaisala. For detecting lightning strikes he use technology that base on the measurement of electromagnetic wave caused by the lightning current from a lightning strike. Roughly speaking, the system is divided into three parts:
- sensors for detecting atmospheric discharges,
- analyzer for analyzing the sensors data and calculation lightning parameters and
- service that we offered to users.
In addition the system contains technological solutions linking sensors, analyzer, servers for data storage, solutions for communication technology with users and much more. Schematic diagram of the SCALAR system and other used technology is shown below.
