nowcast has developed a form of technology which allows for the precise detection of lightning strokes. The system stems from the longstanding research work carried out by Professor Hans-Dieter Betz at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, which began in 1988. Since then, the lightning detection system has been successfully installed all over the world under the LINET (Lightning Detection Network) brand. One of the most impressive characteristics of the LINET is its patented algorithm which enables the detection of the altitude of lightning strokes three-dimensionally. Nowcast explores the fundamentals of lightning detection, offers reliable detection systems and provides high-precision lightning data worldwide.
