WaveGuide Direction

Product Name:WaveGuide Direction
Product Description:The Radac WaveGuide Direction is an accurate radar system incorporating advanced technologies that make it an easy to use, reliable and robust device to measure tide, wave direction, wave height and wave period. This system is designed for use in harsh environmental conditions and is particularly suited to marine and offshore installations. With an array of three radars, the elevation of the sea surface is measured at three positions. These positions form a virtual triangle at the water surface by pointing one radar perpendicularly downwards and tilt the other two. Knowing the slope of the water surface and the phase relations between the three positions, the wave direction can be calculated.
