Baron Services unveils volumetric radar imaging for Omni weather platform

Baron Services at the NAB Show highlighted volumetric radar imaging as a new capability in its Omni weather platform, enabling the user to view storms in 3-D, similar to a CAT scan or MRI.

Often used for storm interrogation and hail detection, volumetric radar imaging takes all available radar elevation scans and creates a 3-D illustration of the storm, which displays storm features like high reflectivity returns, updrafts, downdrafts, hail cores and rotation in precise detail.

When used in conjunction with dual-polarization radar, volumetric radar imaging enables stations to see in a higher level of storm detail including the 3-D representation of hydrometeors like rain, sleet or snow in the atmosphere by altitude, an advantage during local weather coverage.
