Radars for Every Need

Baron high precision radars are available in multiple configurations, so every organization can find the solution that best meets its needs. Dual-polarization is a standard option, providing superior analysis for flooding, hail, winter precipitation, tropical systems, and tornadoes. Fixed, mobile or transportable configurations are available. Baron's accurate weather radars are all of similar design so even if you chose various bands for your network, they share many of the same components keeping maintenance costs down. If you want to learn more about what radar is best for your needs, download this guide.

Radars_S-band

S-band Solutions

Available with up to a 1-megawatt klystron or magnetron transmitter, Baron S-band radars offer excellent weather detection in all environments and offer greater resistance to rain fade.

Radars_C-band

C-band Solutions

Available with a 1-megawatt klystron transmitter or 350-kilowatt magnetron transmitter, Baron C-band radars deliver superior performance in any weather condition.

Radars_X-band

X-band Solutions

Baron’s 300-kilowatt X-band magnetron radar delivers exceptional accuracy for research applications and short-range meteorological surveillance.

Exclusive Calibration for Accurate Weather Radars

Baron has resolved the problem of accurately and efficiently calibrating radars with new sophisticated and patented algorithms that reduce labor costs, increase operation time, and reduce maintenance headaches. Ensuring that radars perform consistently, Baron first developed the Baron Auto-Calibration technology. Next, came our groundbreaking Multi-Radial ZDR Calibration, setting an even higher standard for radar reliability.

Multi-radial Calibration

This patented ground-breaking technology solves several calibration and operational challenges, even in fast-changing meteorological environments. Baron Multi-Radial Calibration is automatically calculated with every sweep, equaling more than 300 times per hour. This eliminates the need for human intervention to keep radar differential reflectivity precise at all times.

Auto-calibaration

Baron’s auto-calibration checks numerous parameters with every volume scan, ensuring the radar system is automatically calibrated 10 times per hour. Even when operating in adverse environments, the hardware can accommodate any temperature-related effects, ensuring continuous accuracy. This keeps Baron Gen3 radar systems reliable, accurate, as well as easier to operate and maintain.

Next Generation Clutter Suppression Technology

Clutter removal is critical to accurate and reliable radar data. With the emergence of 5G and the general increase in radio frequency (RF) transmissions, its importance has never been greater. Exclusive technology from Baron gives you the most advanced and proven suppression systems for ground clutter and RF interference, resulting in greatly improved meteorological data quality.

The Baron ClearScan and CLEAN-AP can work in unison to provide the most effective clutter suppression.

Baron ClearScan™

This patent pending Baron technology uses machine learning algorithms to recognize quality radar data versus anomalous propagation (often caused by wind farms or general ground clutter) or radio frequency interference from other electronic devices. The Baron ClearScan™ removes the unwanted noise, resulting in cleaner, easier to read and more accurate displays of radar data. ClearScan can be tailored to better recognize specific issues your radar is likely to encounter at its location.

CLEAN-AP™

Available exclusively from Baron through a partnership with the University of Oklahoma, CLEAN-AP™ allows for real-time, automatic ground clutter suppression, resulting in a more precise display of actual weather targets. CLEAN-AP™ delivers greatly improved meteorological data quality, especially for areas prone to terrain challenges, through a fully automated process that requires no manual intervention.
