The Weather and Lightning Alerting Solution (WLAS) draws on a vast global network of lightning sensors, detecting both intra-cloud and cloud-to-ground strikes with unsurpassed accuracy.
Easy to interpret and visualize – WLAS data is delivered in a clear, easy-to-interpret format via Miningzone, your customizable interface. Miningzone is built specifically for the industry, considering your unique safety thresholds.
Real-time lightning and storm mapping – each storm that threatens your mining site is GIS mapped across your site and infrastructure. All data is easily visualized and shown in real time, with proactive SMS/email alerts delivered to any device across your network.
Global partners delivering worldwide detection – drawing on the most accurate global lightning detection sensor networks, we integrate data from over 1,800 sensors in more than 100 countries, so our alerting solution has you covered, wherever you are.
Accurate classification of lightning – unlike other systems, both intra-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning activity is detected and located. This robust coverage increases storm forecasting, alerting accuracy, and situational awareness, giving your mine site warnings up to 45 minutes in advance.
Customizable alerting capacity – you can set your alerts to your site’s existing proximity thresholds and Trigger Action Response Plans (TARPs). The WLAS integrates seamlessly with your current systems, optimizing the safety of your team.
Detection accuracy to 200m – with our sensor network, we pinpoint individual lightning strikes down to <200m. This data is filtered into the system in real time and generates alerts shared via email, SMS and your Miningzone interface to any device across your network.
Fully redundant, reliable network – the WLAS is meticulously maintained and fully redundant, ensuring efficiency, accuracy, and a system uptime of 99.9%.
