Meteor 700C / 735C

Meteor 700C and Meteor 735C are cost effective moderate or long-range weather radars, operating in C-band. These systems are particularly suitable for Meteorological services covering moderate distances and precipitation conditions in mid-latitude regions like Europe, North-America and northern Asia.

Both the Meteor 700C and Meteor 735C are available with single or dual polarization. The Transmitters are self-exited type using a coaxial magnetron with solid-state modulator. Both radars use a modular, multi-channel digital receiver, connected to commercial off-the-shelf industrial PC as signal processor.
