DMRL-C (Cyrillic: Доплеровский Метеорологический РадиоЛокатор, ДМРЛ, Engl.: Doppler-Weather Radar) is operating in the C-Band polarimetric weather radar. The transmitter’s power stage is fitted with a Klystron. The symmetric parabolic reflector has a diameter of 4.3 m. Its weight is 244 kg. This type of radar was developed between 2008 and 2012. The inspiration for some technical solutions was the polarimetric weather radar Meteor 635-C of the company Gematronic GmbH (Neuss, Germany).
Note: The origin of the letter “C” in the original Russian designator is not the Cyrillic «С» (spoken as [ʔɛs]) but the Latin letter “C” (spoken as [t͡seː]) for the used frequency band! However, this letter is often read as “S” in Russian context.
