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.
