X-Band Weather Radar WRS400 for Maritime

Awareness for the modern port

Vaisala's X-Band Weather Radar WRS400 is ideally suited for fast-changing maritime environments where quick, decisive actions are crucial. The radar provides highly accurate, port-wide monitoring and alerting — allowing port managers to make informed operational decisions, protect key investments and personnel, and confidently manage route planning and port closures.

WRS400 is also the ideal technology for filling gaps in established C-band and S-band radar networks. The WRS400 system boasts a compact design, plug-and-play installation, and simple integration into existing radar networks. Independent solid-state transmitters provide excellent accuracy and sensitivity with no blind spots, allowing WRS400 to deliver precise, high-resolution awareness of the key weather phenomenon that affect maritime operations most. These include:

  • Snow, hail, graupel, sleet, and rain
  • Freezing rain
  • Thunderstorms
  • Microbursts

Built-in monitoring and internal redundancies improve system maintainability and reliability, and WRS400 maintains outstanding data availability in almost any conditions or location. The unit also has minimal maintenance requirements, low system complexity, and low investment and operational costs over a long service life.
