Copernicus is a 35 GHz (9 mm wavelength) cloud radar at the STFC (Science and Technology Facilities Council) Chilbolton Observatory. The radar is a fully coherent, Ka band, dual-polarisation, pulse compression Doppler radar. It is currently installed on a ground fixed pedestal with a 2.4 m parabolic antenna. The radar is designed to complement the 94 GHz (3 mm) "Galileo" cloud radar currently operating at the Observatory for observations of cloud microphysics and climatology.
