Description
The Cloud Radar System (CRS) is a 94 GHz (W-band; 3 mm
wavelength) Doppler radar developed for autonomous operation in the
NASA ER-2 high-altitude aircraft and for ground-based operation.
It will provide high-resolution profiles of reflectivity and
Doppler velocity in clouds and it has important applications to
atmospheric remote sensing studies. The CRS was designed to fly
with the Cloud Lidar System (CLS), in the tail cone of an ER-2
superpod. There are two basic modes of operation of the CRS: 1)
ER-2 with reflectivity, Doppler, and linear-depolarization
measurements, and 2) ground-based with full polarimetric
capability.
