Selex ES GmbH, a Leonardo company, is pleased to announce the installation of the first METEOR 1700S weather radar system at Radisson in Saskatchewan, Canada. The weather radar now in operation by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is the first of up to thirty-three systems in total that will replace an ageing radar network across Canada. The remaining radars will be installed sequentially over a 5-year period. The METEOR 1700S is the most advanced klystron based weather radar available on the market today and will increase Environment and Climate Change Canada’s ability to anticipate severe weather and will provide greater lead time for Canadians to take action when severe weather hits.
