Wide Area Storm Probe 2

Wide Area Storm Probe 2 is a real-time data viewer and analyzer intended for monitoring lightning activity captured by a StrikeStar Lightning Locator network. The point sources providing this data to StrikeStar are StormTracker and LD250 lightning detectors manufactured by the Boltek Corporation.

Network architecture Lightning strike data which is detected by different Boltek sensors in a StrikeStar network is sent over the Internet to a central processing server which triangulates this data in order to determine the approximate geographical position of the lightning discharge. The StrikeStar output is relayed to a companion server application named LDStream which in turn feeds this data over a TCP/IP based network and serves as an network access point for external client applications.
