Novel Lighting Threat Indicator
European patent No. 3105614 has been filed in 2018
The patent describes a method for determining if there is an increased chance of lightning. Lightning is a threat especially to aircraft launching and landing as a lightning strike can cause loss of power and instrument failure and result in catastrophe. As a safety precaution, airports close during increased lightning threats. Such closures are expensive. Accurately assessing the threat of lightning can save resources, since airports could remain open when there is no threat.
