Sacramento, CA (October 20, 2009)—All Weather, Inc. (AWI), a leading manufacturer of weather information systems and meteorological sensors, has been selected to outfit seven airfields throughout the country of Nigeria with state-of-the-art Lightning Detection and Reporting Systems. Nigeria is a country with frequent and heavy lightning activity making uninformed air travel hazardous. With the installation of the AWI Lightning Detection and Reporting Systems, air travel to and among the destinations of Nigeria is greatly enhanced.

“Nigeria is a great example of the benefits of Lightning Detection technology,” said Steve Glander, International Sales Manger of All Weather, Inc. “The airfields using the AWI Lightning Detection and Reporting System are scattered across the country of Nigeria. Using this system will help route air traffic out of harms way making air travel both safer and more efficient.”

The Lightning Sensor, developed by AWI, is an FAA, ICAO & WMO compliant, unmanned system that provides up-to-the-minute lightning data to airport personnel, pilots, and meteorological offices.
