Abstract:

This document describes two distinct equipments developed for use with meteorological radar systems. The Weather Radar Transponder calibrates a radar system in amplitude for both directions of travel from a remote location and additionally verifies its doppler response from an on-site location. The Ground Clutter Canceller removes unwanted ground returns and feed-through which would otherwise corrupt estimates of doppler spectral mean and width obtained by a Pulse-Pair Processor. Author
