WR-10X / WR-25XP X band weather radars

Two revolutionary X-Band mini weather radars, powerful receivers & processors, customized weather radar upgrades

Model WR-10X

The WR-10X is a valuable tool for real-time monitoring of weather phenomena in areas with complex topography. It can be used advantageously at both urban and regional levels, or as a gap filler for an existing network.

A mobile version can be deployed quickly in situations where meteorological alerts arise in areas with significant hydrological risks, becoming an important tool for civil protection emergencies. The possibility of WR-10X cluster networking allows the system coverage to be extended practically without limit. The result is a unique image that combines the data collected by all the radar units included in the network.

Thanks to the use of the latest technology, as well as the capital, installation, and operating costs of WR-10X radar networks, these are an attractive alternative to the traditional high-power, large-size, weather radar approach. A comprehensive set of the most common radar output data, the so-called “weather products”, is provided with the system, and thanks to the open software architecture, additional or customized products can be easily added later.

The control and display software has a very intuitive GUI and the possibility to be web visualized. The system can be remotely controlled, operated, and tested, resulting in no requirement to access the radar site for standard operations.

Gap filling, storm prevention, research, hydrology, transportation, outdoor events… All easier now with WR-10X

  • Remote control of the main functions
  • Data is recorded in a standard format suitable for further processing.
  • Coverage of larger areas by networking
  • Minor dimensions and weights (90 cm diam., Radome 130 cm height. 90 kg total weight)
Model WR-25XP

The WR-25XP is the flagship product of the X-Band mini radar family, characterized by a price/performance ratio that is unique on the market.

The capacity to operate in simultaneous dual-polarization and Doppler capabilities make WR-25XP an ideal instrument for the most advanced radar hydro-meteorological application, as well as for medium-scale civil protection uses. Given its small size and weight, the WR-25XP can even be installed on a light trailer for quick relocation to areas open to hydrological risk, or to areas with high concentration of people for civil protection needs.

Its cluster networking ability allows the system coverage to be extended practically without limit. The resulting image produces mosaics, integrating the data collected by all the sensors making up the network. Thanks to the use of the latest technology, as well as the capital, installation, and operating costs of WR-25XP radars networks, these are a very attractive alternatives to the traditional high-power, large-size, weather radar approach.

A powerful Linux Workstation, typically installed in the Radar Control Centre or near the radar itself, processes the polar data of the three-dimensional spaces containing the instances acquired by one or more radars. The result is the generation of a large number of reflectivity and Doppler products, usually only available with considerably more expensive weather radars. Furthermore, by means of the differential parameters measured, thanks to dual polarization, a reliable classification of hydrometeors is possible. At the same time, the Doppler processing allows for instantaneous estimation of the turbulence velocity vectors.

The products can be displayed through a simple graphic user interface; the Metranet2, for immediate use, even by non–experts. The data and weather maps produced can be even displayed through WEB Clients, either supplied by manufacturer or third parties. The WR-25XP can be installed in unattended stations as it can be remotely controlled, and it can transmit pre-processed data.

Gap filling, storm prevention, research, hydrology, transportation, harbour and airport activity, outdoor events… Anticipate the future with WR-25XP.
