The E600 is the smallest, most affordable and portable weather radar system available. The E600’s exclusive combination of power and portability make this system the number one choice in tactical weather radar systems. Weather sensitive operations rely on the E600 to deliver accurate, real-time information including:
While the E600 has been designed for maximum portability it also has been engineered to withstand the rigors of front line duty. The E600 is in service in some of the most difficult environments around the world today
The E700XD sets the new standard for portable Doppler Weather Radars. The E700 combines the latest state of the art solid state technology, industry leading digital signal processing and EWR’s innovative mechanical design. The result is the most compact, portable and advanced Doppler weather radar available.
Where previous Doppler radars utilized tube transmitters (Klystrons, magnetrons, TWTs, etc.) that require frequent tuning and are prone to failure in harsh environments such as those found in mobile tactical applications, the E700XD uses a solid-state transmitter which is virtually maintenance free and consumes far less power.
WeatherScout® is the real-time radar control and display package for operating the E700XD radar system. WeatherScout comes pre-installed on the E700XD Radar Control Computer (laptop or desktop PC, depending on customer configuration). The Radar Control Computer is connected either directly to the Radar Signal Processor unit with a single Cat-5E network cable, or through a local area network (LAN). WeatherScout provides the radar operator with the following functions:
WeatherScout is designed to provide a single operator with all the functionality needed to control the radar operation and display data in a single, easy to use application. In addition, WeatherScout allows multiple clients to connect to a single radar, allowing several stations to be configured in different locations for radar control and display. This offers great flexibility for situations requiring multiple users to access a single radar.
