1. Introduction


CINRAD/XD (M), a mobile X-band Doppler weather radar, is used for on-site meteorological observations during emergencies and scientific studies to detect, track and observe severe convective weather (such as thunderstorms and hail) within 300km and to measure the intensity, velocity, spectrum width and polarization parameters of precipitation targets. This radar provides real time and accurate data for disastrous weather forecasting, issuing of warnings and scientific research.


2. Configuration


Transmitter, receiver, antenna and servo system, signal processor, radar monitoring system, products generation and display system, power system, mobile shelter and accessories.
