The METEOR 1700C is a high-powered C-Band weather radar designed for precise weather detection and warning in clutter-polluted environments. The sophisticated system features a fully coherent 250kW klystron transmitter to deliver excellent data quality and maximum clutter suppression. This is particularly important for close-to-ground observations required by airport users.
The METEOR 1700C is supplied with GDRX® and Rainbow® for the precise detection and tracking of thunderstorms, wind shear, gust fronts and other severe weather phenomena at medium ranges.
The METEOR 1700C is available with single or dual polarization (DP). The dual polarization option enhances the measurement of precipitation intensity and makes way for the categorization of different types of hydrometeors such as drizzle, rain, hail and snow. DP also enables the identification of non-meteorological targets like birds and insects, which can be hazardous to aircraft.
