DWSR 5001C

The DWSR 5001C is an operating in C-Band dual-polarization weather radar. It is a further development of the well proven DWSR 2501C by doubling the transmitter (2×250 kW) and the receiver so that the radar can transmit simultaneously in linear-horizontal and linear-vertical polarization.
