These interferences have great effect on the detection data precision, which leads to radar data quality problem. A data processing method based on Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) is presented in this paper, which focuses on the nonlinear problems of wind data of wind profiler radar. The locomotor activity of the animal is recorded automatically by means of microwave radar based on the Doppler effect.

The sensitivity is normally controlled by a trimmer with a narrow regulation range (22 kohm).

Spectrum Modal Analysis for the Detection of Low-Altitude Windshear with Airborne Doppler Radar A major obstacle in the estimation of windspeed patterns associated with low-altitude windshear with an airborne pulsed Doppler radar system is the presence of strong levels of ground clutter which can strongly bias a windspeed estimate.

Airborne Doppler radar detection of low altitude windshear As part of an integrated windshear program, the Federal Aviation Administration, jointly with NASA, is sponsoring a research effort to develop airborne sensor technology for the detection of low altitude windshear during aircraft take-off and landing.

Abstract: This paper describes an enhanced weather processor for the Federal Aviation Administration's Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR-9) that will include Doppler wind estimation for the detection of low altitude wind shear, scan-to-scan tracking to provide estimates of the speed and direction of storm movement and suppression' of spurious weather reports currently generated by the ASR-9's Cited by: Airborne weather radar is being developed to detect hazardous low-altitude windshear.

One of the major challenges is development of signal processing algorithms which will perform satisfactorily when the weather return signal power to interfering ground clutter return power is very low.

Abstract: The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is developing the Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR) system to determine the location and severity of LAWS (low-altitude windshear) phenomena and other weather hazards (e.g.

These include the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) c, the range resolution ∆R, the Doppler (velocity) resolution ∆F D (∆v), ambiguities in range and Doppler, range and Doppler sidelobes, and range-Doppler coupling.

An important issue in low-altitude wind-shear detection is to estimate the wind speed of wind field. In this paper, a novel method for wind speed estimation with airborne phased array radar is proposed by combining space time adaptive processing and compressive sensing.

The proposed method is able to achieve accurate wind speed estimate in the condition of limited number of sampling pulses, as. interference analysis [5]. One technical challenge for spectrum monitoring networks is in the selection of sensing algorithms that enable MCDs to infer spectrum occupancy.

Several of the existing works on REM assume the use of received signal strength indicator (RSSI) or energy detection-based methods to delimit incum-bents’ protection zones. The predictive windshear system uses the weather radar to detect where there is a doppler shift in the precipitation ahead of the airplane.

If there is a significant shift measured, it warns the pilots. (Typically, a downburst spreads out when rea. For detection of convective windshear, the WTWS relies partly on the output from a Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR) at Tai Lam Chung, about 12 kilometers from CLK.

The windshear warning system ingests TDWR products including gust front, precipitation intensity, and storm motion, providing an integrated alert system.

An airborne windshear detection system - Volume Issue - D. McLean, Z. Zouaoui. Radar The primary goal for the airborne radar was real-time remote detection of windshear from “wet” or “dry” (defined as having a radar reflectivity less than 35 dBZ) microbursts.

This document is available to the public through. the National Technical Information Service, Springfield, Virginia   For each dual‐Doppler analysis, the central (mean) KCRP volume time was used to select the SMART radar volume whose central volume time was the nearest to KCRPs.

The processed volumes were passed into a natural neighbour (Sibson, ) scheme described in Betten et al. () to interpolate each radar volume to a common Cartesian grid of 1. Radar detection of low level wind shear is based on the ability of a Doppler radar to measure the horizontal velocity of particles in the atmosphere.

Unfortunately, a single Doppler radar cannot measure wind direction, because the Doppler radar can only measure velocity along the centerline of the radar beam. This is called radial velocity.

In simple ranging radars, the carrier will be pulse modulated and in continuous wave systems, such as Doppler radar, modulation may not be systems use pulse modulation, with or without other supplementary.

Radar - Radar - Factors affecting radar performance: The performance of a radar system can be judged by the following: (1) the maximum range at which it can see a target of a specified size, (2) the accuracy of its measurement of target location in range and angle, (3) its ability to distinguish one target from another, (4) its ability to detect the desired target echo when masked by large.

Radar - Radar - Atmospheric effects: As was mentioned, rain and other forms of precipitation can cause echo signals that mask the desired target echoes. There are other atmospheric phenomena that can affect radar performance as well. The decrease in density of the Earth’s atmosphere with increasing altitude causes radar waves to bend as they propagate through the atmosphere.
