Mira-35

Mira-35 (formerly named MIRA-36) is a Ka-Band magnetron-based Cloud Radar with high sensitivity allowing to observe even light clouds. It is designed for unattended long-term operation. Several antenna sizes can be installed stationary or in a trailer as mobile platforms.

In the basic version the antenna lies on a horizontal surface and radiates only upwards. The antenna is a Cassegrain type with a diameter of 1 or 2 m. It uses linear polarization on transmit, co and cross polarized signals are received simultaneously. MIRA-35 can be mounted on a pedestal allowing elevation and azimuth scanning within zenith angles from -90 to +90° and azimuth angles from 0 to 360° (continuous rotations).
