 ====== ProRad ====== ====== ProRad ======
-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.
-===== What ProRad can do for you =====+===== Open source software ​=====
 +ProRad is is licensed under [[http://​​licenses/​gpl-2.0-standalone.html|GPL version 2]] or (at your option) any later version. (A copy of the license is also found on the [[license|License]] page.)
-You may use ProRad for (all, or any of) + 
-  ​* filtering polar volumes to be used for NWP assimilation +===== Short description ===== 
-  * apply VPR correction to polar volumes, and generate 2D products such as SRI, PPI or PCAPPI, from the corrected volumes + 
-  * generate ​mosaics, or composites, from 2D products +**ProRad** - **Pro**cessing framework ​for **Rad**ar data. 
-  * accumulated precipitation products from single site or mosaics products (SRIPPIPCAPPIMAX) + 
-  ​* re-project ​2D products+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 moduleseach handling a limited set of operations on the supplied datasets. Combined these programs/​modules provide a powerful tool for processing radar dataand synchronisation of the processing is handled through message passing between the programs/​modules. The messages are basically an announcement of dataor products, and some metadata to identify the dataset. 
 +===== Development timeline ===== 
 +Development of the ProRad system started in the autumn of 2005 at ​ The first operational version of ProRad was installed at 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 Most of the ProRad software and libraries are written in C/C++.
