Register for the Weather Radar Technology Summit

On January 6-7, 2015, in Phoenix, Ariz., Baron is bringing together leaders in radar meteorology for its first Weather Radar Technology Summit.

Free to attend, the event will be held in the Phoenix Convention Center’s West Building, Room 101-A. The summit will take place from 8am-12pm each day, with a bonus lunch presentation to immediately follow. You can register either by clicking here or using the form at the bottom of the page.

Presenters will be a mix of industry and government weather radar experts, who will be covering the use of weather radar to obtain and distribute critical weather intelligence to stakeholders and the general public.

Here’s a look at the schedule:


We’ve designed the summit to be of great use for a range of attendees. For example:

If you are an operational forecaster:

  • You will get insight into how the world’s largest weather service deals with upgrades and new technologies in an established radar network.
  • You will see how to ensure a radar network stays calibrated—and why it’s so important.
  • You will learn about ways to handle erroneous data without impacting accuracy, using advanced signal processing techniques.

If you are a member of academic faculty:

  • You will learn about the latest technologies for radar signal processing and calibration.
  • You can engage us in discussion about collaboration opportunities to further your research.

If you are a broadcast meteorologist:

  • You will learn about the full capability of the US radar network behind much of your daily weathercast. As a result, you can separate your station from the competition.

If you are a student:

  • You will get an in-depth understanding of how weather radar technology has evolved over time.
  • You will gain new perspective on operational radar networks. See how everything you’re learning in class applies to real-world applications.

Space is limited, so register below for this free event. We look forward to seeing you in Phoenix!
