Talos SFD-1000 Storm Front Detector

New from PMT! The new patent-pending Talos SFD-1000 Storm Front Detector.

Lightening causes over a thousand injuries per year. Since 2006, lightening strikes were reported as the second leading cause of storm deaths in the United States. Most of these injuries could have been prevented had they known that lightening was in the area.


PMT developed the Talos SFD-1000, an innovative storm front detector sensor, that can be used to detect lightening and provide situational awareness of approaching storms up to a distance of 25 miles.
