Meteorological support

For the first time, meteorological observations using radar equipment began to be used during the Second World War. The first locators were quite simple, one-parameter, and made it possible to determine only one characteristic of precipitation and cloudiness - radar reflectivity Z. But even these modest capabilities made it possible to determine the location of cloud zones and their structure.

Modern meteorological radar equipment is a complex electronic system that operates with many parameters. With their help, you can solve the following important tasks:

Modern radio meteorology operates with only three frequencies: X (3.2 cm), C (5.3 cm) and S (10 cm). To determine intense precipitation, the S range is most often used, as the least susceptible to the negative influence of weather conditions. The disadvantage of this range is that an antenna with a diameter of at least 9 meters is required to work with it.

The X-band is rarely used, as it is 100 times more dependent on the weather than S. Its only advantage is the ability to use ultra-small antennas for observations - only 2 meters in diameter for a 1 ° beamforming. It is a meteorological observation format used for mobile radars based on automotive technology.

The C-band (5.3 cm) is a reasonable compromise between antenna diameter, meteorological sensitivity and cloud attenuation. Equipment for this frequency requires an antenna with a diameter of only 4.3 meters, which allows it to be used in a wide variety of situations.
