Concern PVO "Almaz-Antey" has successfully completed the State acceptance tests of the prototype of the Doppler weather radar of the new generation of "DMRL-C."
Doppler weather radar "DMRL-C" is the first operational weather radar network that uses technology to complex signals previously used only in the locators air traffic control, and military products, and has no foreign counterparts. This provides a weather radar and delivery within a radius of 250 km in the operational mode (every few minutes) meteorological data in the form of various cards.
According to experts, the use of complex signals opens up opportunities to create the next generation of weather radar. Introduction to "DMRL-C" dual polarization mode also significantly expanded its capabilities by obtaining a fundamentally new information about the structure of the observed meteorological objects. This information will be available for the first time domestic meteorologists on-line observations.
In 2008, the Russian Government adopted two federal programs to create the meteorological radar network that provided a radar cards all over the country and meeting the modern requirements of consumer information.
In the framework of the federal program "Modernization of the EU ATM Russia (2009-2015 years)" and "Creation and development of a monitoring system of geophysical conditions over the territory of the Russian Federation for 2008-2015 gg ‘capacity for more than 150 radars" DMRL-C . " As a result of creating a single meteolokatsionnogo fields, and combining the information with foreign networks, the Russian weather forecasters will be able to significantly improve the accuracy of their predictions.
