S-band radar

S-band radar

One that operates in the frequency range between 2 and 4 GHz, corresponding to the wavelengths between 5.9 and 2.95 in (15 and 7.5 cm). This classification was prevalent before 1962, and this former S-band forms part of the E and F bands in the post-1962 classification.

In 2017, IMD commenced operating a new Doppler Weather Radar (DWR) at Mundamveli, Kochi as the S-band radar had become obsolete.
The LRDR program is built upon S-Band radar technology and is the latest in a long line of S-Band radars developed by Lockheed Martin, including the Aegis Combat System, Space Fence and Aegis Ashore.
The new system is said to be a giant leap from the existing S-band radar, which has been functional since 1991 with a wavelength of 5 centimeters.
Based on frequency band, the market is segmented into HF- and VHF- Radar, C- Band (UHF- Radar), D- Band (L-Band Radar), E/F-Band (S-Band Radar), and others.
The purpose of this paper is to provide, via example, the high-resolution precipitation microphysics phenomena and insect behavior that can be revealed with data from a state-of-the-art polarimetric S-band radar like National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)'s S-Pol.
Compared with the SC method, the correction amount is larger and the corrected reflectivity is much closer to the reflectivity of a nearby S-band radar. The effectiveness of the method was also evaluated by comparing the rain rates estimated by the radar and those estimated by the rain gauges.
The device offers high efficiency, enabling RF design engineers to use fewer components to design smaller and lighter linear amplifier circuits for commercial and military wireless communications and S-band radar applications.
The longer wavelength radars are much less affect ed by this, so use NEXRAD (which is a long-wave S-band radar) to help you get an idea of what's on the other side.
Customer specific product variations which can be leveraged from this baseline, 1 to 2.5 GHz platform, include high power pulse applications for S-Band radar and multi-kW "scaled up" power combinations for L and S-Band applications.
It plans to track 200,000 of them with the Space Fence S-band radar system it is building for the U.S.
With more than 400 operational S-band arrays deployed worldwide, Lockheed Martin is a leader in S-band radar development, production, operation and sustainment.
A similar situation is to be expected in the field of marine radar [1, 2], present in most vessels, as they (X-band radar) are mandatory for all passenger vessels and for all vessels above 500 tons GT (Gross Tonnage), with a double-band requirement (X-band radar + S-band radar) above 3000 tons GT.
