With a diameter of 25 metres, the 3 GHz CAMRa is the largest steerable meteorological radar in the world. It is able to remotely determine the shape and orientation of cloud and precipitation particles in the atmosphere. Over 20 years ago, an S-Band ex-air surveillance radar was first installed on the 25 metre antenna at Chilbolton for studying precipitation and clear-air phenomena. Since then, the original radar has been improved many times to measure new parameters.
