Digital Beamforming Radar Systems

ProSensing has developed beamforming radar systems for fine-scale ocean surface imaging, topographic mapping of the ocean surface in hurricanes, and volume imaging of clear-air turbulence. Digital beamforming radars operate by illuminating the scene with a flood beam antenna and simultaneously or sequentially sampling the scattered signal with an array of receiving antennas. Customers for digital beamforming antennas and full systems include the Naval Research Laboratory, NOAA Hurricane Research Division, and NASA.
