GAMIC - Model GWSP - Weather Signal Processor
From Signal Processing
GAMIC’s Doppler Weather Extractor is designed to augment ASR (Air Search/Airport Surveillance Radars) or ATC (Air Traffic Control) Radar with a comprehensive weather data output.
GWSP improves safety of equipment and human life in aircraft, naval or military operations by using the existing Surveillance Radar to detect and to report hazardous weather phenome in the tactical surrounding area.
GSWP extracts the information from the ASR in parallel to the tracking function and does not conflict with the main functions of the Radar. It is available for radars using magnetron, klystron or solid-state transmitters.
Critical Output Data
GWSP is providing fast and precise weather data by processing and identifying sever precipitation, wind shear and critical weather events like microbursts and gust fronts.
The corrected and processed output data are displayed in real-time and color-coded weather parameters: Reflectivity (Z), Doppler Radial Velocity (V) and Turbulence (W). The data can be sent in suitable formats to operating stations, i.e. ASTERIX CAT-8 or other high resolution formats.
FROG-MURAN can be implemented in full mode to generate derived products to predict the arrival and to track weather events for the complete picture of hazardous weather in the critical areas.
GWSP has been installed over 50 times and is operating successfully for more than 10 years at German, Swiss and Canadian Air Forces, as well as Schiphol Airport (Netherlands).
