Wind Profiling Portable Radar
QinetiQ North America’s WiPPR® provides in-situ, real-time wind information used for a wide variety of applications including mission planning and data gathering. WiPPR data increases the accuracy of forecast models and decreases miss distance during airdrop operations.
WiPPR accurately measures wind information on clear days as well as inclement weather such as fog, rain and snow. Compared to other wind profiling technologies, WiPPR offers more accurate and reliable vertical wind measurement. The system is easy to use and maintain and requires limited power to operate.
- Measurement of real-time wind information to support guided, ballistic and personnel airdrop operations
- Measurement of wind information for meteorological application in forecast models
