ESSC ARMOR Radar
ARMOR is a scanning dual-polarimetric Doppler radar operating at C-band (5625 MHz) with a beam width of 1o. It was originally deployed in Huntsville by the National Weather Service as a local warning radar in 1977 (WSR-74C), refurbished and upgraded to Doppler in 1991. The radar was donated to the UAH Dept. of Atmospheric Science in 2002 and upgraded to dual-polarimetry using the SIGMET Antenna Mounted Receiver in Fall 2004.
