Modernising existing systems

We have the intellectual property rights and patents on our innovative procedures and Met Office specialists can design complete new weather radar systems or integrate your existing equipment. We can upgrade and modernise existing radar - extending the life of systems and avoiding the costs involved in new radar installations. The cost of modernising systems varies so we prefer to carry out an initial engineer's assessment before we supply a definite cost.

We have extensive experience of such refurbishments, both on our own network and for other weather services across the globe. Read our case studies on our work in Cuba, the Caribbean and the UK.
