The 3 GHz Chilbolton Advanced Meteorological Radar (CAMRa) is the largest fully steerable meteorological radar in the world. The 25 metre dish is located at the Chilbolton Observatory in England (UK). The large antenna of the 3 GHz weather radar gives it both high sensitivity and a very narrow beam. It has dual-polarisation capability, which means that it can transmit and receive both horizontally and vertically polarised pulses. This makes it possible to determine the shape and orientation of cloud and precipitation particles in the atmosphere. It also has full 'Doppler' capability, which means it can map the radial component of a wind field.
