Microsferics project for lightnings tracking

KWOS is participating to the Microsferics project!​ Look the result on the Real Time Weather page.

Microsferics Lightning Detection Network, MicroLDN, is a low cost, high accuracy experimental lightning detection network currently operating in parts of Europe and North America.

By using off-the-shelf electronic components and custom designed signal amplifier electronics we created a GPS disciplined time-stamping device for the Boltek range of lightning detectors, making them capable of networked lightning locating using the signal Arrival Time Difference locating method.

Two MODE-S/ADS-B 1090MHz receivers have been activated. They are contributing to the FlightRadar24 community. 
Mode-S is a Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR) technique that  is very accurate and provides pilots and air traffic
controllers with common air situational awareness for enhanced safety, capacity and efficiency.
ADS-B is a system in which electronic equipment onboard an aircraft automatically broadcasts the precise location of the aircraft via a digital data link.


  •  Now the telescope is fully controlled from the house and can be also controlled with a Team Viewer connection everywhere on Internet. It's also possible to check the movements with an infrared camera.
  •  In the weather & sky page you can find the data coming from the Sky Quality Meter. If you're planning to come in Scandriglia to do astronomical observations, please take a look to it before leaving.
  •  A wide angle camera, very sensible to the light (0x0001 lux), has been installed to catch meteors and lightning.
