MTWE 2017 is one of the largest shows in the world of technologies related to climate, including weather forecasting, climate analysis, measurement, and services. FURUNO, willing to contribute even more to the development of new technologies in this field, will exhibit its Compact X-band Dual Polarimetric Doppler Weather Radar "WR-2100" and present, for the first time, its new self-contained and smartly designed X-band Doppler Weather Radar "WR110". In addition to these two innovative Doppler Weather Radars, FURUNO will display the well-known GNSS Displacement Measurement System, "DANA".
The WR-2100, which is the world's smallest and lightest weather radar, has already been the choice of many all over the world. The Radar can be used in various kinds of environment and covers many fields of application such as water management, traffic support or disaster assistance.
The DANA, for its part, is able to measure, with millimeter precision, ground displacement in 3 dimensions by using GNSS positioning system. Furthermore, this GNSS sensor, by determining precisely land movements, provides considerable help in predicting potential disasters such as landslides or volcano eruptions.
At this exhibition, FURUNO will provide several examples of installation for the equipment above.
