Weather Radar System
Monitoring extreme weather events caused by climate change.
Weather radars, meteorology and real-time alert systems
Weather radars are an essential part of any early response strategy that aims to alleviate the damage caused by increasingly frequent and damaging precipitation events worldwide. Hydro-meteorological hazards such as thunderstorms, floods and droughts can result in economic productivity losses and social development setbacks.
ADASA’s weather radars are essential remote observation instruments to improve decision-making when facing climate change events, mitigating damage and helping to avoid irreparable harm. Radars of today are state-of-the-art sensors, ever since the incorporation of Doppler processing (for wind speeds) and dual-polarization (quantity and type meteor, rain, snow, hail).
Our automatic weather radars are the most effective tools to assess weather situations, providing reliable information to support decision making, and improve safety and efficiency. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, it enables continuous data collection by generating accurate real-time precipitation information and warnings.Show moreShow less
These radars can be installed in remote locations, without personnel, and are built to withstand snow, hail, high winds and other adverse conditions.
ADASA has extensive experience providing accurate and quality information through turnkey solutions for weather monitoring. ADASA deploys and maintains the systems that collect vast amounts of online hydrological and meteorological data, and applies modelling techniques that can help mitigate natural disasters.
Using our weather radars, meteorologists can make very reliable predictions (nowcasting) in the very short-term as well as study the atmospheric evolution of water masses - essential for the validation and correction of the algorithms used in numerical weather prediction models.
Air traffic controllers can check for wind shear on runways during storms. Water agencies and authorities can mitigate storm damage by using evolving, real-time information to make data-backed decisions on resource deployment, such as what the status of the access roads may be during precipitation and flooding events.
The Doppler measurement of wind speed makes it possible to detect storm-scale cyclonic-type rotations that are generally part of supercells, structures linked to the generation of heavy rains, lightning, hail, strong winds and tornadoes.
Our modern – and increasingly essential - real-time weather radar systems provide accurate and timely data collection of the most crucial precipitation parameters, to ensure citizens, businesses, and assets are protected from inclement weather.Show less
- Real-time updates of rains affecting areas to keep the general public informed.
- Validate or correct models used for weather forecasting.
- Radar data helps deduce the exact amount of water that has precipitated in managed water basins.
- Track weather event information to ensure the safety of the participants and the audience at open-air events.
- Increase flight safety by directing aircraft through areas free from wind shear and gusts.
- Use real-time radar precipitation data during disasters, to find out which areas require immediate attention and which sites may soon have a problem.
- Follow cyclonic events in real-time (or later) for scientific studies.
- Spot precipitation events prone to damage crops (hail, heavy rains).
