The purpose of this project is the definition of the test procedures of the components of the data processing chain in an X-band airborne polarimetric weather radar and the optimization of the algorithms where necessary.
The main specific objectives are :
- testing and the optimization of the preprocessing chain: test of the attenuation correction algorithm by propagation in rain, test of the clutter cancellation algorithm by filtering and the test of the motion compensation algorithm.
- finalization, testing and optimization of the classification algorithms of the weather phenomena based on polarimetric characteristics: requirements, description, implementation of the classification algorithm, test-bed specifications
- design of the testing scenario of the whole processing chain: X-band airborne radar scenario from meteorological scenario, X-band airborne radar scenario from S- and C-band weather radar measurements, X-band radar measurements.
- S the study for the definition of the risk factor .
