-ProRad is a software system for processing radar data.+===== Mission Statement =====
  
-The system has a wide range of capabilities ranging from clutter filtering polar volumes to generating mosaicsor composites, from 2D products or datasets.+At the start of the projectwe formulated the following mission statement
  
-ProRad consist of collection of specialised programs each handling a limited set of operations on the supplied datasets. Combined these programs provide a powerful tool for processing radar data, and synchronisation ​of the processing ​is handled through message passing between the programs. The messages are basically an announcement ​of data, or products, ​and some metadata to identify the dataset.+**"​Construct ​flexible, scaleable, event driven and distributed system ​for processing radar-data, capable ​of handling all necessary ​processing of 2D and 3D datasets."**
  
-There is no need to configure ​the message passing between the individual ​programs; it is an inherent feature ​of the system.+which still is the guideline for the continued development of the system.

 +**ProRad** - **Pro**cessing framework for **Rad**ar data. 
 + 
 +The system has a wide range of capabilities ranging from clutter filtering polar volumes ​to generating mosaics, or composites, from 2D products or 3D datasets. 
 + 
 +ProRad consist of a collection of specialised programs, or modules, each handling a limited set of operations on the supplied datasets. Combined these programs/​modules provide a powerful tool for processing radar data, and synchronisation of the processing is handled through ​message passing between the programs/modules. The messages are basically ​an announcement ​of data, or products, and some metadata to identify ​the dataset. 
 + 
 + 
 +===== Development timeline ===== 
 + 
 +Development of the ProRad ​system ​started in the autumn of 2005 at met.no. ​ The first operational version of ProRad was installed at met.no in June 2008.  The QC algorithms developed as part of the joint 3 year long project with the hydro power sector, was declared pre-operational November 2011. The routines were declared fit for operational use in January 2012.  ProRad is currently used for all processing, and visualisation of radar data at met.no. Most of the ProRad software and libraries are written in C/C++.
