ATRAD

ATRAD

ATRAD produces state-of-the-art, cost effective radar systems for measuring and interpreting the state of the atmosphere and provides excellent scientific and technical advice about remote sensing of atmospheric phenomena.

The study of weather and climate is of concern to everyone. Weather forecasting is becoming increasingly important in many areas, ranging from air-traffic control to pollution monitoring to artillery support.

The study of climate change, too, is increasingly important and relies on upon the collection of accurate data for atmospheric modelling. Suggestions that early indications of changes in climate are clearest in the upper atmosphere give new impetus to its investigation.

Ground-based radar systems have been used to study the atmosphere and the weather and to collect data for several decades, measuring atmospheric phenomena such as wind velocities, turbulence, atmospheric waves, energy exchange between different layers of the atmosphere and the drift of ionisation trails left by meteors as they fall through the atmosphere. In recent years, advances in signal processing technology and in the scientific understanding of the atmosphere have seen the emergence of commercially viable, turnkey atmospheric radar systems. ATRAD is a leading developer and supplier of such systems.

Since 1995, ATRAD has supplied systems, components and expertise for over 60 major radar installations.

ATRAD has been able to successfully leverage the experience gained from the development of these complex and highly flexible research systems to develop a modular systems architecture. This architecture allows ATRAD to supply complex research systems, turnkey operational systems and radar sub-systems.

The ATRAD Atmospheric Boundary Layer Radar Systems (BL12/12 and BL12/27) have been specifically designed for wind profiling a localised area (0 - 10 km Radius) at heights between 300 metres up to 8 kilometres above ground level.

Typical system configurations include a 12kW solid-state transmitter and 27 three-element Yagi antenna array. System frequency is set at factory within the range of 30 – 64 MHz.

ATRAD's Steerable Ionospheric Analyser (SIA) has been designed specifically to observe ionospheric irregularities and their east-west drift in the E and F regions. The radar operates as a coherent Doppler back-scatter radar, with the radar beam to directed perpendicularly to the geomagnetic field at E or F region heights.
