Ride the X-band Wave

Vaisala Expands Weather Radar Offering to Include X-band Radars

The new X-band Weather Radar provides highly accurate measurements for a limited area, filling in a gap in a national radar network or delivering precise information for an airport. Severe weather in mountainous areas and gaps under sparse weather radar networks will now be visible when X-band radars are added to the weather radar networks. Airport safety and efficiency will be improved with accurate detection and nowcasting of hazardous conditions.

Vaisala Weather Radar - A Better Way to Measure

Distinguished History of Expertise

Since developing the first radiosonde in 1936, Vaisala has over 80 years of experience in professional weather observations. In the late 1990s we built on this experience by developing our weather radar. We made a conscious decision to concentrate on C-band radar systems, components, and services – realizing from the start that they would provide the best value for our customers. Along with our complete systems, installation, and delivery we also offer Vaisala IRIS radar application software, which can also be used to support radars from other manufacturers.

Weather Radars - Trusted Worldwide

Vaisala operates globally and in long-term collaboration with customers. Our goal is continuous interaction over a weather radar system’s lifecycle to ensure that you achieve maximum value. We have delivered more than 130 systems over 10 years, with 27 meteorological institutes trusting Vaisala to provide their weather radar. We have also delivered Vaisala signal processing and software to more than 400 radars worldwide – to both Vaisala radars and those of other manufacturers – and have upgraded many radars around the world to extend their lifecycle. Wherever you are in the world, we are there for you.​​​​​​​​​​​​​
