HOW DOES THIS THING REALLY WORK?

The basis of Skyscan's new and patented technology is that the unit samples and analyzes selected pairs of frequencies within the electromagnetic spectrum of a lightning stroke. It then applies this information to determine the distance of that lightning stroke. The strength and uniqueness of the Skyscan approach are that it allows a tremendous amount of information to be extracted and analyzed by a relatively simple hardware system. The simplicity of the hardware is made possible by the proprietary software which performs the analysis of the incoming information. The reliance on software, rather than on hardware, also allows the Skyscan system to be extremely intelligent with regard to eliminating false triggering while displaying several different types of important information to the user.

The unit is accurate to within 1 to 2 miles 97% of the time.

One of the most important advantages of using this unit is that the user can detect a thunderstorm as far away as 40 miles. This gives the user approximately 1-1/2 hours warning on average.

Another very important feature is that Skyscan starts detecting a thunderstorm up to 70 miles away, even though it does not visually register until 40 miles. This feature helps Skyscan determine if the inclement weather could possibly be a line of thunderstorms (squall line), or if the storm is within those 10% of the most severe thunderstorms that might create severe winds, torrential rains, hail or even possibly a tornado. If these conditions are present, then the unit will activate the severe storm warning light, along with a different type of audible tone, alerting the user to these conditions. The user can then readily tell the location of the storm relative to their position. Skyscan will continually update this information each 15 minutes until the conditions no longer exist.

Because of terrain and obstacles, the human eye will only see lightning approximately 3 miles away and the human ear will only hear thunder 3-4
miles in most parts of this country. It can readily be noted that human guesswork grossly lacks in its ability to see a storm coming in time.


Keep in mind that the SkyScan Detector is only detecting lightning and not trying to predict where lightning might strike.

Even with the use of Skyscan, the first stroke of lightning put down by the storm might in fact be the one to hit at your location.  Therefore, anyone out-of-doors during thunderstorm season should constantly remain aware of the build-up of inclement weather. But until now, there has never been a handheld unit capable of doing what the SkyScan Lightning/Severe Storm Warning unit can do, especially at this price.


As you can tell, the Skyscan detector can be used in many different ways - either camping, boating, hiking, swimming, golfing, boating or any time you or anyone is out-of-doors. Commercial applications would include farming, all utilities, tree trimming, construction, roofing, road work - anywhere you may have personnel working outdoors and unable to be alerted by conventional communications. Plus it has the capability of in-door use. The unit will obviously detect lightning and track the storm whether it is being used inside or out.
