What is a dry thunderstorm and what are its risks?

By definition, “a dry thunderstorm is a storm that has no or very little precipitation associated with it, but does carry electrical activity”. The absence of precipitation can create a false sense of security that poses a serious risk to the safety of people and structures. In this scenario, a system with sensors capable of detecting all phases of the storm and issuing warnings before the first impact can make a difference.

Storm detection service: ATSTORM®, self-compensating system for unprecedented accuracy

The ATSTORM® storm detection system, remotely operated by the experts at Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A., uses the dual technology of electrostatic field sensors and electromagnetic field-based sensors. The scanning of any environmental sensor can be interfered by any external element. The redundancy of ATSTORM® detection units allows to obtain a homogeneous alarm valid for the whole target area, thanks to the balanced auto-compensation of the obtained values that guarantees an exceptional accuracy.
