The mobile X-band radar requires a flat (<3% incline) and firm piece of ground (concrete, tarmac, gravel) in a location with as few obstructions as possible to reduce the amount of ground clutter. Buildings, trees and power lines are the main obstacles. There also needs to be good road access to the site: wide enough for the trailer and no low hanging tree branches. Security, power, visibility and internet are the four main considerations. The radar cannot be left unattended unless security is guaranteed. The radar can be operated from its in-built diesel generator, but having 3-phase power is preferable. A building or portacabin is needed for the controlling computer. It is possible to communicate between this computer and the radar by wireless, but an internet cable is preferable. 3G communication is also possible. All of this should be discussed in detail with the Instrument Scientist.
