Model MIRA-35 - Doppler Scanning Cloud Radar



The pulsed Ka-band cloud radar MIRA-35 (formely named MIRA-36) is unique in performance and durability and delivers a calibrated Doppler spectrum of cloud droplets in up to 1024 height steps for a vertical range between 0.2 km … 15 km at a time resolution of 10 s. The wide dynamic range and the very high system sensitivity allow a tomography of cloud structures even in thin ice layer. Several antenna sizes can be installed stationary or in a trailer as mobile platforms.

  • MIRA-35 mounted on a servo driven positioner
  • Continuous azimuth rotations, 0 … 360°
  • 1 m or 1.2 m Cassegrain antenna with optional heating
  • Up to 2 x 1024 measuring heights (real + imag)
  • Horizon to horizon RHI scans ±90 °
  • Ongoing radar measurements while scanning
  • Freely programmable scan patterns (VDA, RHI, volume)
  • Entry of predefined scan patterns via interface
  • Synchronized movement in both axes
  • All radar components integrated in the scanning unit
  • No RF rotary joints
  • Slip rings and bearings kept in conditioned environment
