The Meteor2000C – the best is yet to come

As solid-state weather radar systems were just recently introduced into the market and the expectations of the new technology are high, a comparison between the different transmitter topologies such as solid-state, magnetron, or klystron will be provided, including the pros and cons of each system. A brief explanation of specific solid-state parameters like blind range, range Doppler coupling, pulse compression and transmitter power in relation to tube-based transmitters will be given. These aspects will be shown in connection with Leonardo's newly launched Meteor2000C solid-state C-band weather radar system.
