Clutter Removal in a Weather Radar Using an Adaptive Array Antenna

High resolution windspeed profile measurements are needed in a weather radar to provide the reliable information of rapidly changing weather conditions. However, it is necessary to remove both stationary and moving clutter to obtain the accurate pulse pair estimates. To overcome these problems, a simple adaptive array antenna may be applied to clutter removal. Using the simulated weather and clutter data, the clutter cancellation capability is analyzed for a weather radar with an adaptive antenna. The pulse pair estimates obtained from the adaptive weather radar are compared with those of the raw data.
