Abstract:

The work reported included Terminal Doppler Weather Radar TDWR, Air Surveillance Radar-9, Integrated Terminal Doppler Weather Radar Surveillance Systems TASS. The staff members of the Weather Sensing Group have documented their studies in four major areas Operational Systems TDWR Operational Test and Evaluation results Radar Operations future airport weather surveillance requirements, a machine intelligent gust front detection algorithm, microburst asymmetry study results, a shear-based microburst detection algorithm, and a hazard index for TWDR-detected microbursts Signal Processing coherent processing across multi-PRI waveforms, clutter filter design for multiple-PRT signals, and identification of anomalous propagation associated with thunderstorm outflows and Analysis Methods multiple-single Doppler wind analysis using NEXRAD data, and an adjoint method wind retrieval scheme.
