Summary:
A real time data processor has been designed for use with the AFGL 10-cm Doppler weather radar which is to be operated with alternating transmission of horizontally and vertically polarized signals. In this mode of operation the reception of backscattered signals of polarizations identical to those of the transmitted signals allows the computation of the differential reflectivity between the two polarizations in  Read more...

Abstract:

A real time data processor has been designed for use with the AFGL 10-cm Doppler weather radar which is to be operated with alternating transmission of horizontally and vertically polarized signals. In this mode of operation the reception of backscattered signals of polarizations identical to those of the transmitted signals allows the computation of the differential reflectivity between the two polarizations in addition to the absolute reflectivity and the Doppler mean velocity and variance. The switching of transmitted polarization introduces difficulties in the estimation of the autocovariance of the received signals, from which the Doppler velocity parameters are derived. The processor design and the allowed modes of radar operation circumvent these difficulties. This report describes the processing algorithms theoretically and presents details of the implementation of these algorithms in hardware. (Author).
