Phased Array Radar

P hased Array Radar provides the FAA with the ability to acquire high quality weather data in near real-time using advanced radar technology. Given that the present rotating antenna radar systems are limited, especially in timeliness, newer phased array radar technology that is proven to be more flexible and efficient can be applied to the meteorologist’s requirements.

Our team provides proven capabilities in: radar design based on the SPY-1A phased array radar; environmental processor design based on the Tactical Environmental Processor (TEP); and experience in continuous rotation pedestals. Our team offers a full compliment of individuals from the following: Lockheed Martin, Naval Electronics and Surveillance Systems-Surface Systems, National Weather Service, National Severe Storms Laboratory, National Oceanic and Atmospherics & Instrumentation and Oklahoma University.
