4 Dense networks of low power, dual pol, multi-Doppler, X-band radars High spatial and temporal resolution Adaptive scans based on weather, user needs and radar capabilities 4 tornado wind earth surface snow RANGE (km) CASAs Solution

5 What is CASA? National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center – Academic, Government and Private Sector Partners – NOAA is a CASA partner Developing new weather observation systems based on low-power, low-cost networks of radars. Transition research to operations. Year 8 of a 10-year research project

6 Purpose: Establish a radar network in the Dallas- Fort Worth area using CASA technology. Comprehensive radar data in the lower atmosphere Faster radar return rate Higher resolution – Flood and Wind (thunderstorm, tornado) forecasts – Flood and Wind decision support tools – Base level radar data Public/Private Partnership

7 7 Rapid, High Res. smart scans – balance competing user needs for data – adapt to changing weather – RHIs, PPIs, dual Doppler, sector scans, within a volume scan Improved resolution, sensitivity, accuracy, and ability to support multiple users and multiple applications. NEXRAD = 5 min between updates CASA = 1 min between updates

11 Timeline May 2011 NCTCOG Approves Feasibility MOU with CASA June 2011 CASA WX Steering Committee August 2011 CASA WX Funding Subcommittee September 2011 NWS Funds $500K toward DFW Testbed Demonstration Projects

12 Timeline Continues October 2011 Commence relocation of Oklahoma test bed to DFW area November 2011 Finalize initial sites February 2012 Complete installation of initial four radar network March 2012 Demonstration network operational June 2012 Finalize second round of radar sites October 2012 Complete installation of second round of radars

13 PROPOSED RADAR LAYOUT

14 FIRST FOUR SITES: Site 7: UNT Discovery Park, Denton Site 3: Alliance Airport, FAA building Site 11: University of Texas, Arlington Site 2: TBD – Carrollton, near G. Bush Tpk. And Kelly Blvd Blue – submitted sites Green, Yellow : new sites

15 NEXT FOUR SITES Site 5: Terrell Municipal Airport Site 9: Mesquite Metro Airport Site 13: McKinney Public Safety Building Site 3: TBD - Near Farm to Market Rd and County Rd. 536

16 Option #1: Expand to South West as one continuous network TOTAL NETWORK SIZE = 12 RADARS

17 Option #2: Expand to SW as two disjoint networks TOTAL NETWORK SIZE = 12 RADARS

18 Plan for Covering the Whole COG Area Add 3 radars to connect the disjoint networks. Add 3 radars to expand in South East direction. Add 2 radars to expand in North East direction (including Commerce High School and one new site TBD at Merit, near Farm to Market Rd. 36 and County Rd. 1126) TOTAL NETWORK SIZE = 20 RADARS

19 Proposed Demonstration Projects Public Response to Severe Weather Warnings Neighborhood-based Flash Flood Warnings Development of Impacts-based Weather Information Emergency Management Training
