EOL is beginning development of a novel 5-cm Airborne Phased Array Radar (APAR) with dual-Doppler and dual-polarization capabilities to be operational on the NSF/NCAR C-130 aircraft.


The long-term goal of the Perdigão project is to create numerical models that better represent flow over complex terrain than those currently in common practice.
