Ranger® - New from EEC

This is the Future of X-Band

The new era of X-Band is here! Everything you want in an X-Band is in EEC's new Ranger weather radar system. The Ranger system features dual-polarity accuracy, solid-state transmitters, and low power consumption, all in one affordable and portable unit.

Put the Accuracy of Dual-Polarity to Work Anywhere

Operating on the shorter X-Band wavelength, EEC's Ranger weather radars have dual-polarity built-in so they can detect even tiny particles, such as high altitude water droplets or light snow at short to mid-range distances. The Ranger's compact size means you can install it in a hard-to-reach permanent location or take it almost anywhere, anytime as a truly portable unit. And with a very affordable price, EEC's new Ranger is the ideal solution for everything from small airports to offshore oil platforms to rapid deployment military maneuvers.

THE RANGER-X1 & X5:

This is what X-Band should be! Developed by EEC in collaboration with the prestigious Advanced Radar Research Center at the University of Oklahoma, the affordable Ranger-X1 is a compact system weighing less than 430 lbs/195kg yet featuring a 100-watt dual-polarity, advanced solid-state transmitter and very low power consumption.

Whether you choose the Ranger-X1 or Ranger-X5 with more radiated power, EEC's turnkey design, manufacturing, and installation processes allow us to configure your system to your exact specifications. Among the many options are a variety of full-featured control and display systems, and precise Doppler processing through our super-sensitive digital receivers. You can even choose permanent or mobile installation options.

Dual-Polarization – The Future is Here Today

Over 15 years ago, EEC pioneered dual-polarity radar. Today, all of our Ranger models are equipped with our new, highly advanced dual-polarization system incorporating features that are years ahead of anything else on the market.

Working with world-renowned experts and the University of Oklahoma's Advanced Radar Research Center, we have developed better algorithms and end-to-end dual-polarization measurements. This not only results in more accurate estimates of rainfall, but also provides better discrimination between different types of precipitation and non-meteorological signals, such as birds, insects, dust storms, or even the debris field of an approaching tornado.

We have also developed proprietary technology to significantly improve clutter suppression performance in our popular and dependable solid-state systems. The final result is obvious – EEC dual-polarity systems provide the highest resolution data available in the industry.
