Mira-10 is operating in X-Band vertically pointing cloud radar specifically designed for the collection of high-quality radar Doppler spectra and moments of liquid and frozen hydrometeors.
The radar uses a fixed mounted symmetrical parabolic antenna with a diameter of 2.4 m. Its transmitter is a solid state power amplifier. Depending on the desired maximum range and accuracy, it provides either keyed ON/OFF RF-pulses or an intrapulse modulated waveform with a length of up to 5 µs.
