Weather radar networks are comprised of advanced radar system hardware and software:
- antenna-pedestal subsystem
- transmitter subsystem
- receiver subsystem
- processor subsystems
Each radar system operates automatically and as part of a coordinated network. Each system detects and tracks weather phenomena in its designated area and continuously transmits data to regional and central processing centres equipped with workstations installed by Schneider Electric. There, mosaic images are generated that display comprehensive, near-real-time results of all parameters observed in all key locations.The information provided by Schneider Electric radar observation networks can be integrated with satellite images and with data originating from other-source networks. The radar network centres also allow remote control and monitoring of the local radar system.
