Moble X-band radar deployed to Dallas/Ft Worth for tornado season

 MIRSL's X-band polarimetric mobile Doppler radar, X-Pol, has been deployed to the Dallas/Ft Worth area to serve as a temporary node in CASA's Dallas/Ft Worth Urban Testbed. It is deployed at the site of a future CASA radar to be installed in June 2014. In the interim, the X-Pol radar will provide needed coverage of the western sector of the network as several major events are planned in the Dallas Ft Worth Area, including the NCAA Final Four, during the Spring 2014 tornado season.
