GMWR-400/1000-SST

Solid state X-band Doppler weather radar with dual polarization

The GMWR-400/1000-SST is a cost-effective, flexible, and entirely solid state X-Band Doppler weather radar. It is designed for operation ranges up to 100 km and uses Doppler technology for accurate radial wind velocity measurements. Its dual polarization feature offers attenuation correction, advanced product generation, hydrometeor classification, and detection of non-meteorological objects.

New possibilites with solid state

Core feature of our GMWR-400/1000-SST is its entirely solid state design, including the transmitter. This novel technology offers enhanced dual polarization features, like simultaneous or alternating polarized signals, enabling new approaches for scientific issues. The higher possible pulse repetition frequency (PRF) allows measurement of higher wind velocities, a feature for regions suffering from strong winds and storms.

Reliable hardware components

The GMWR-400/1000-SST is built with a minimum number of components and few wearing parts. This enables low investment and small operating costs while being highly reliable. Hardware maintenance effort is reduced because of higher MTBF rates and can be performed by any local technical service with experience in radar maintenance. The symmetrical splash plate antenna provides perfect conditions for dual polarization measurements and thus is the ideal completion of the solid state weather radar.

Advanced signal processing

ENIGMA Signal Processor

All GAMIC radars include our digital receiver and signal processor ENIGMA which allows rapid scanning and analysis products of scientific quality and accuracy. Digital Doppler velocity processing enables accurate velocity measurement.

The processing allows filtering of the input data, including clutter suppression (40 dB or better) resulting in less ground clutter, and the removal of distortions, speckles, interferences, and more. The result is clean weather output data which can be further processed as meteorological products.

Comprehensive software suite

FROG-MURAN display with radar data visualization

The perfect enhancement for your radar system is our weather radar software suite FROG-MURAN. It provides full product generation capability, including volume scan products and hydro-meteorological rainfall analysis. The visualization system serves high quality radar images which can also be displayed via our browser-based Webview application.

Flexible operational applications

Besides the typical stationary radar installation, we also offer transportable and mobile radars. Our custom solutions comprise mounting on a vehicle or trailer, a self-erecting hydraulic mast, a flexible container for transport and deployment in remote areas, and more.
