Abstract:

The Weather Outline Contour Generator WOCG was built by the Burroughs Corp. for SRDS to demonstrate the feasibility of quantizing analog video so as to represent different intensity levels of weather clutter. These levels are subsequently displayed as three contour outlines. The equipment was built as a modification to the Radar Video Data Processor RVDP but as a separate unit that can be conveniently moved to different site locations for evaluation under different environmental conditions. The report contains a detailed description of the WOCG, including photographs showing how the output of the WOCG compared with raw radar data. The appendices contain a list of applicable references, glossaries of terms and symbols, and detailed electrical and logical schematics.
