Wind Profiler


NPN
NPN The NOAA Profiler Network consists (NPN) of 35 Wind Profiler sites located throughout the country. Wind Profilers are specialized Doppler Radar systems that use sounding and a coaxial-collinear antenna to measure vertical profiles of horizontal wind speed and direction.

ROC engineers are utilizing their expertise with the WSR-88D Doppler Radar system hardware and software to assist NPN engineers in their effort to bring Wind Profiler equipment into the 21st century.
