The WERA system (WavE RAdar) is a shore based remote sensing system to monitor ocean surface currents, waves and wind direction. WERA is using the lowest noise FMcw technique to provide highest temporal and fine spatial resolution for time critical applications. The vertical polarised electromagnetic wave is coupled to the conductive ocean surface and will follow the curvature of the earth. This over the horizon oceanography radar can pick up back-scattered signals (Bragg effect) up to ranges… CONTINUE READING
