E 750 is operating in the X-Band weather radar designed for standalone operation or “gap filling” in existing networks and difficult terrain situations. The radar offers simultaneous dual polarisation for enhanced accuracy in identifying meteorological products. It is suitable for fixed or mobile applications.
The radar consists of only two main components:
- the antenna unit, a pedestal with the transmitter and the receiver;
- a COTS personal computer with the weather radar software.
