In the face of the climate change, the role of weather radar has become even more important. Natural hazards triggered by heavy rains, storms and other high-impact phenomena have increased rapidly.

A 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.
Vaisala operates globally and aims to build long-term relationships with you: 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.
