The Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA) partnership, along with the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) have embarked on a five-year, $10 million project to create the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Urban Demonstration Network.  This project is centered on the deployment of a network of 8 dual-pol, X-band radars to demonstrate improved hazardous weather forecasts, warnings and response in a densely populated urban environment.  These radars provide weather hazard information at spatial and temporal scales that are relevant to urban decision-making and human response.  To date, the DFW innovations network has provided both CASA researchers and commercial partners with the perfect environment to develop technologies, while also understanding market value. Enterprise Electronics Corporation (EEC), one of the first suppliers of solid-state X-band weather radar technologies to the DFW test bed, realized numerous innovation in it's Ranger product line thanks in large part to the true “plug-and-play” environment provided by the CASA DFW proving ground.
