Kontur-METEO-01

Kontur-METEO-01 (Russian designator: Метеорологический радиолокатор, МРЛ «Контур-Метео-01») is operating in X-Band light-weight weather radar for stationary or mobile use.

It uses a waveguide slot antenna with a diameter of 76 cm and a gain of 34 dB. The radome has a diameter of 1.1 m with a height of 1.05 m. The radar transceiver (the big black box in Figure 1) is the same as of the airborne version Kontur-10C.
