This is an AMF category 6 instrument indicating that the instrument is under development, testing and assessment. The IS is required to be involved in every step of the process from the planning of the project through deployment, data quality control and initial analysis. There are a number of support options including:

  • IS deploys the radar, the user operates after training, with IS monitoring
  • IS deploys and operates the radar at the site
  • In special situations possibly at a secure site, the IS deploys and operates/monitors the radar remotely. A local person would be needed to perform routine maintenance and checks.

Potential users should contact the IS and discuss their operational requirements before formally requesting access to the instrument.
