A friend, former co-worker, fellow enginerd and boat-building student has put up a good blog about work, family, home and hobbies. It's got some posts that seem to ring a bit close to home sometimes, but are particularly interesting. Today's post on his blog is about his work and is quite interesting. To describe what he does would be rather complicated. Suffice it to say that the picture above is of what they make. In simplistic terms, it is RADAR.
One of the major applications of this type of RADAR is weather monitoring. On Da Goof's site are some links to Weather Channel videos about how this equipment is used for tornado chasing!
