THOR GUARD’S ANSWER TO THE ANTIQUATED LIGHTNING DETECTION PROTOCOLS FORCED ON SCHOOLS BY THE NCAA AND STATE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATIONS
Are you forced to use an 8 or 10 mile detection protocol for athletic events? You love Thor Guard’s lightning prediction capabilities, but are forced to follow guidelines that are inefficient. Many of the lightning strike notifications are provided by lightning detection networks that have no sensors providing local, live strike data to you. Networks are late to the party and miss many strikes, close and far. In our view, an eight-mile strike that has already occurred can be too close for comfort. Thanks to our work with the University of Miami, we have the solution, a solution that only Thor Guard can provide. You will not find this option with DTN / Storm Sentry, Weather Bug, Perry Weather or Strike Guard.
The TG360 is the most complete and technologically advanced system ever developed. Years ago, we were forced to develop our own lightning detection system because none of the lightning detection networks were accurate or fast enough for our forecast duties with the USGA. It took over eight years to complete this task to our satisfaction. Now we have the answer for all lightning protocols and more. Our TG360 customers can now utilize our technology and get the best, most complete and accurate lightning and storm warnings ever devised. You have the option to choose between pure prediction or prediction plus detection to cover every lightning situation.
If you have a TG360 and choose the detection / hybrid option, here is how it works. The detection alarms will be set at eight miles by default. If a strike occurs at or inside the eight-mile range, the Red Alert horns will sound. However, if the Thor Guard prediction system predicts the likelihood of a strike before that strike in the detection range occurs, the Red Alert horns will be triggered. This covers you for every lightning occurrence. After a storm has left the area, the detection protocol will be in effect and an All Clear will be issued after the last strike is detected within eight miles after a thirty-minute wait. If Thor Guard goes to All Clear first, likely over 70% of the time, we will indicate an All Clear on the prediction window, but defer to the detection protocols for an All Clear signal.
There you have it. Thor Guard is your only complete source to address the dilemma of using true, advanced lightning prediction safety technology with the Thor Guard TG360, or some antiquated lightning detection protocol. Why buy from someone else for half of your lightning and other weather safety warnings? Thor Guard truly delivers everything you will ever want or need!
