THOR is a totally integrated advance warning system for lightning. THOR continuously monitors the atmosphere’s electrostatic energy within a 15-mile radius and evaluates the potential for lightning within a 2-mile radius. Once the system detects a hazardous condition, the system goes to RED alert in the top right of the viewing screen to indicate the potential for lightning within a 2-mile radius at Chennault International Airport. If you were on the flight line at Chennault, you would be warned with air horns and a flashing strobe light.
