GAMIC Data Systems For Doppler Weather Radars

FROG-MURAN is GAMIC’s original developed complete data processing suite for stand-alone Doppler weather radars and for multi-radar networks, in C-, S- or X-band.

Designed to be fully independent of equipment, FROG-MURAN is compatible with all types of Doppler Weather Radars using magnetron, klystron or solid-sate transmitters, in single or dual polarization, including pulse compression options.
