MIRA-10 is a vertically pointing X-band radar specifically designed for the collection of high-quality radar Doppler spectra and moments of liquid and frozen hydrometeors. It uses a solid state amplifier for transmitting and operates either in pulse mode or in pulse compression mode. These modes can be chosen by the user depending on the required sensitivity, range resolution and lowest useable range gate.

In pulse mode it transmits pulses with a pulse length from 100 to 400 ns corresponding to a range resolution of 15 to 60 m. In pulse compression mode MIRA-10 transmits longer frequency modulated pulses. As the peak transmitting power is limited for the solid state amplifier used in the transmitter and the pulse repetition rate (PRF) is limited for preventing second trip echoes the average transmitting power and with it the sensitivity can only be increased by increasing the pulse length. By modulating the transmitted signal and correlating the receiving signal with the transmitted chirp, a higher sensitivity is achieved while the range resolution is retained. For generating the frequency modulated transmitting pulse MIRA-10 uses a Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS).

Main Specifications:

  • Peak transmitting power: 800 W
  • Maximum average power: 40 W
  • Number of range gates: 800
  • Transmitting frequency range: 9.2 … 9.6 GHz
  • Antenna diameter: 2.4 m

The pulsed "Stream Line“ Doppler Lidar system is operated at an eye safe wavelength (1.5 µm, class 1M) and delivers profiles of back scatter intensity from aerosol or clouds, Doppler wind components and derived profiles of horizontal wind speed and wind direction.

The system offers easy set up and convenient remote control. The unique scanning unit allows complex scan patterns within the whole upper hemisphere. Metek adds a sophisticated routine to derive vertical wind profiles from arbitrary 3D scan patterns and to display the output variables by our Metek Graphics.
