Short wavelength technology and the potential for distributed networks of small radar systems

  title={Short wavelength technology and the potential for distributed networks of small radar systems},
  author={D. W. McLaughlin and V. Chandrasekar},
  journal={2009 IEEE Radar Conference},
The NSF Engineering Research Center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA) is advancing a new approach to radar network design based on dense networks of short-range radars. The center's concept is to deploy small radars atop communication towers, rooftops, and other elements of the infrastructure as a means to comprehensively map winds, rainfall, and other atmospheric and airborne objects throughout the atmosphere with resolution, low-altitude coverage, Doppler wind vector… CONTINUE READING
