The Naval Postgraduate School and the Navy’s Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS) in collaboration with ProSensing Inc. has modified an X-Band tactical radar system to add a weather observation mode. The new system was named MWR-05XP (Mobile Weather Radar, 2005 X-Band, Phased Array) and is the first mobile, electronically scanned phased array radar developed for weather sensing applications. Key system parameters of the MWR-05XP rapid scanning radar system are summarized. As part of the modification, ProSensing developed a state-of-the-art PC based weather processor (WRP), which provides radar control, data acquisition, signal processing, real-time data display. Processing algorithms provide estimates of reflectivity, average radial velocity and velocity spread for distributed targets.
