Baron Services completes design review for NOAA

Baron Services, in partnership with L-3 Communications, has successfully completed the critical design review phase of the U.S. National Weather Service’s NEXRAD upgrade to dual polarization.

In preparation for its Integration Test Readiness Review, which will take place in April, the L-3/Baron team is now assembling the first of the NWS’ 171 pending NEXRAD system upgrades.

The L-3/Baron team’s detailed drawings and schematics covering the hardware, software, safety, security and environmental impact of the upgrade — the results of their 12-month design phase — were presented to more than 100 government officials in October 2008. The materials demonstrated the team’s achievement of the NWS’ key performance parameters and its compliance with the NWS’ CDR requirements.

Under the NEXRAD contract, the L-3/Baron team is providing design, development and production of a comprehensive, systemwide upgrade of the 171 NWS, Federal Aviation Administration and Department of Defense NEXRAD radars to dual polarization.
