The METEOR 1700S is a high-powered S-Band weather radar system. It was designed to be employed in severe weather regions, where attenuation by intervening heavy rainfall impedes the precise measurement of precipitation at long ranges.
The sophisticated system features a fully coherent 750kW klystron transmitter to deliver accurate data and maximum clutter suppression. The METEOR 1700S is supplied with GDRX® and Rainbow® for the precise detection and tracking of thunderstorms, wind shear and other severe weather phenomena in tropical regions.
The METEOR 1700S is available with single or dual polarization (DP). The dual polarization option further reduces the impact of rainfall attenuation and makes way for the categorization of different types of hydrometeor such as drizzle, rain, hail and snow.
