Weather & Environment

Leveraging dual-polarization performance designed to deliver exceptional accuracy, the X-band Weather Radar delivers clean data to increase safety and improve operational efficiency.


  • Smaller size and lower cost make X-band ideal for enhancing localized weather detection
  • Fills the gaps in tough terrain to reliably detect snow, rain, and other weather activity
  • Improves the accuracy of precipitation measurement in existing networks.

X-band utilizes simple site selection, automatic and continuous calibration, easy installation and integration into existing networks, a simplified signal path and new measurement methods to make this technology industry-leading.
Remote operation and diagnostics reduce the need for site visits and empower decision-makers with high-quality data, 24/7 availability, and improved sensitivity.
