Radiometrics recently completed two significant acquisitions that transition the Company into a single-source supplier of total upper-air profiling solutions. Radiometrics now offers remote-sensing systems providing continuous wind and thermodynamic upper air monitoring, with all-weather high-resolution boundary layer and tropospheric measurements.
On May 5, 2016, Radiometrics purchased the Radar Wind Profiler (RWP) division of DeTect, Inc. Radiometrics is now the manufacturer and sole-source for RAPTOR® radar wind profilers. The RAPTOR wind profiler technology incorporates advanced software, advanced antenna systems, advanced signal processing and a digital transceiver system. RAPTOR radar wind profilers are available in boundary layer, tropospheric and stratospheric configurations.
The DeTect RAPTOR RWP staff have joined Radiometrics, and will continue to provide the exceptional products and customer support for which the RAPTOR brand is recognized. E-mail addresses and phone numbers for the Raptor product team are unchanged until September 1, 2016; the team members also have Radiometrics e-mail addresses.
Radiometrics has also acquired the technology and assets of Atmospheric Systems Corporation (“ASC”), manufacturer of advanced sodar profiler hardware and software tools for wind profiling in the lower boundary layer. Radiometrics currently offers technical support, parts and repairs for all ASC sodar products, and is integrating the ASC MiniSodar product line into its manufacturing plan.
Dick Rochester, Radiometrics’ President and CEO notes that “this dynamic instrumentation suite is critical to satisfying the global need for improved High Impact Weather event detection and forecasting.” And he states that “the RWP and SODAR systems, like all of Radiometrics’ instruments, will be integrated into the company’s continuous product improvement program, assuring optimal long term performance in all conditions”. All of these instruments are manufactured in the USA, with technical support and serv
Radiometrics of course continues to offer its market leading MP-Series thermodynamic profiling radiometers, and the PR-series single and dual-polarized radiometers. All Radiometrics products are subject to a continuous product improvement regiment and are manufactured in the USA, with technical support and services provided from Radiometrics’ facilities in Boulder, Colorado, as well as through selected in-country representatives.
