JUPITER OLS: Optical Lightning Surveillance
JUPITER OLS LIGHTNING MONITORING SYSTEM
Jupiter OLS Monitoring System Delivers Lightning Strike Locations with Unparalleled Accuracy
A picture says a thousand words. In the case of a lightning strike on a high-value asset, the stakes could be thousands of dollars or more. When you need definitive information on lightning activity affecting your assets, Jupiter OLS is your go-to solution.
Jupiter OLS sets a new benchmark in lightning surveillance. Contrary to popular belief, existing “state-of-the-art” lightning location networks often miss at least 10% of all lightning events and can inaccurately report strike locations by miles. These networks also suffer from other inaccuracies, such as:
- Overlooking lightning strokes with multiple ground attachment points,
- Ignoring upward illumination (UI) strokes,
- Misidentifying weak positive cloud-to-ground strokes as intracloud discharges.
SLS’s expert team of lightning scientists and engineers have crafted Jupiter OLS to be the world’s first site-specific lightning monitoring system that addresses these shortcomings. Jupiter OLS boasts 100% detection of lightning events, pinpointing their exact locations with unparalleled accuracy. Real-time reports are generated and sent to facility managers. Each system is custom configured to meet the unique needs of your site, ensuring your valuable assets are monitored with complete reliability.
Jupiter OLS offers flexible deployment options. It can be permanently installed for ongoing operations or temporarily set up to diagnose and resolve lightning-related operational issues. The system can also be swiftly deployed for short-term needs, such as mobile infrastructure like movable oil rigs or military operations. SLS offers a range of purchase and lease options for Jupiter OLS systems.
