Video from NOAA on the MPAR (Multifunction Phased Array Radar)

Have a look at the following interesting video produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) with regard to the myriad possible uses of the Multifunction Phased Array Radar (MPAR), for weather, aviation, security and homeland defence, among other things. It is currently being developed in Oklahoma, USA.

“The Multi-function Phased Array Radar (MPAR) project was established to demonstrate the potential to simultaneously perform aircraft tracking, wind profiling, and weather surveillance with a single phased array weather radar. NOAA’s National Weather Radar Testbed (NWRT) is a repurposed U.S. Navy phased array radar (PAR) built in the 1970’s, now actively tested and evaluated in Norman, Oklahoma.”
