CLA (Alcântara Launch Center) Weather Radar revitalization

CLA (Alcântara Launch Center) Weather Radar revitalization

The Alcântara Launch Center – CLA – maintained and operated by the Brazilian Air Force – FAB, acquired an american X-band dual polarization weather radar that was inactive for several years due to break in its components. ATMOS has been selected to solve the problem and provide maintenance and training for operators of this equipment.

Since July 2016, the radar is active again in the CLA operational routine and in its launch campaigns, thanks to the work of ATMOS engineers.
