First tornadic ciruclations captured by an all-digital phased array weather radar

While the 1.4TB of I/Q data still needs to be processed, it is likely that Horus, which was designed and built by the Advanced Radar Research Center at the University of Oklahoma, captured ~5 tornadic ciruclations that occurred over C OK using advanced all-digital polarimetric phased array techniques. These are likely the first of their kind, such as:

  • 2D beam spoiling raster scans that completed 60° az by 20°el sector scans ~every 8s

  • Mechanical rotation with spoiling in elevation by 15° to complete complete volume scans in ~15s.

We hope that datasets like these can demonstrate where operational weather radars are headed in the future!

Photos are not mine, but I was in Horus devising scan strategies! Check out: post to see other pics!
