Antenna-Mounted Receiver for C-Band Weather Radars

An easy, cost-effective dual-polarization upgrade for existing single-polarization weather radar systems.


    Vaisala’s antenna-mounted receiver upgrade quickly and easily transforms your existing single-polarization radar into a modern dual-polarization system.

    It allows you to efficiently upgrade, rather than replace, your existing single-polarization system. You save time and money while greatly improving the data capture capabilities and accuracy of your weather radar system.


    Get all the benefits of dual polarization without the downtime and cost.

    An antenna-mounted receiver makes it possible to send and receive both signal channels through one channel rather than separately through the pedestal. The upgrade is a tried and tested one-size-fits-all product that only requires minimal site-specific adjustments.


    Adding vertical pulse capabilities to your existing single-polarization radar will greatly improve the capacity and usefulness of your weather radar.

    Vaisala’s antenna-mounted receiver will allow you to capture precise horizontal and vertical weather data on the size, shape, and variety of targets. It’s perfect for extremely accurate quantitative precipitation estimation, hydrometeor classification, elimination of non-meteorological targets, attenuation correction, and better detection of weak precipitation.


    Remote access is built into our antenna-mounted receiver system. It provides an intuitive web-based interface that allows for off-site system calibration and maintenance, data monitoring, and system control.

    To further minimize maintenance costs, the design makes all components easily accessible and replaceable for quick repairs.
