Storm Radar

MISSION

Scanning for strong winds before they reach land

Strong winds pose a severe risk of causing major accidents on bridges across the sea, port crane operations, commercial shipping and any other activities near the shore. STORM Radar applies collision avoidance radar conventionally used aboard vessels unconventionally to monitor for the occurrence of storm-class winds from blowing in from the sea and bringing with them dangerous waves heights.

Currently STORM Radar is installed at the Pearl Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in the world connecting the hundred-and-fifty-thousand residents of Awaji Island to the Japanese mainland in order to prevent accidents caused by gale force gusts and winds.
