Upgrade of Bermuda weather radar system contracted

The Bermuda Airport Authority (BAA) has awarded Selex ES GmbH, a Leonardo company, with an upgrade of its existing S-Band Klystron weather radar.

 

The existing system, a Selex ES type METEOR 1500S weather radar, was installed in 2004 and will now be upgraded to Selex’s current state-of-the-art METEOR 1700S S-Band Klystron version featuring dual polarization.

 

The upgrade consists of a complete antenna overhaul while maintaining the existing radome and the tower infrastructure.
