Cossor CR 353

Cossor CR 353 was operating in S-Band meteorological radar that could be used for windfinding by tracking passive corner reflectors attached to balloons or for direct weather observation by the fitting of a suitable display unit. The CR 353 can thus be used as a “minimum” equipment providing only one function or as a major component of a complete weather-reporting system.
