Preliminary Results from the Rapid-Scan DOW: A Multi-Beam Inexpensive Alternative to Phased Arrays
Joshua Wurman, Center for Severe Weather Research, Boulder, CO
The Rapid-DOW, which employs simultaneous transmissions at several different frequencies to create multiple, simultaneous beams at different elevation angles, will be deployed and tested for the first time with the ROTATE-2003 project in April-June 2003. This new technology offers an alternative to traditional phased array systems costing perhaps 20x as much. Preliminary results will be presented.

Prefer oral presentation.
