Vaisala Weather Radar WRS300

The future of weather radar design is here. And it’s Solid.

    REDEFINING WEATHER DETECTION

    Cutting-edge C-band weather radar technology for high-performance weather surveillance and smart early-warning decisions

    The newest addition to our solid state weather radar family, Vaisala Weather Radar WRS300 provides high performance and exceptional accuracy in an integrated, low-maintenance package for improved prediction of and preparation for adverse weather.

    WRS300 is the most efficient weather radar of its kind that leverages solid-state power amplification to enable weather detection across large areas with unprecedented longevity.

    As a stand-alone solution, our C-band weather radar offering covers large areas. Paired with the X-band weather radar—which provides unparalleled short-range coverage—decision-makers have the most comprehensive intelligence in the industry.

    INTEGRATED AND COMPACT DESIGN

    Our commitment to solid state technology, compact architecture, and built-in redundancy with no consumables provides the most sensitivity to deliver exceptional accuracy at optimized life cycle cost.

    Solid-state transmitters continue operating even in the event of semiconductor device issues, and problem devices can be replaced without shutting down the whole radar system. The narrow bandwidth of transmitted radio waves enables more effective use of radio wave resources.

    HIGH-QUALITY COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE

    WRS300 provides high-quality, comprehensive data: 24/7 in high altitude, structural icing, dust, wind, power outages, and other demanding conditions.

    With a high-quality weather radar system, your team can detect hazardous weather like tornadoes, hail or flooding as well as locate and calculate the speed of precipitation to support accurate arrival times. This data can help meteorologists, broadcasters and other industries transform insights into action in a rapid, efficient manner by providing reliable forecasts and accurate results.

    EXCEPTIONAL DATA ACCURACY
