 +At the start of the project, we formulated the following mission statement
  
 **"​Construct a flexible, scaleable, event driven and distributed system for processing radar-data, capable of handling all necessary processing of 2D and 3D datasets."​** **"​Construct a flexible, scaleable, event driven and distributed system for processing radar-data, capable of handling all necessary processing of 2D and 3D datasets."​**

 +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.

Most of the ProRad software and libraries are written in C/C++.
