About Mardoc Inc.

MARDOC (Modular Antenna Radar Designs Of Canada) is a company which specializes in development and deployment of radars with scientific applications. We particularly work with atmospheric and meteor radars. Our current productions are a windprofiler radar called WindTtracker, and an all-sky meteor system called SKiYMET.

The WindTtracker (Wind and Turbulence Tracker) is an atmospheric radar designed to measure wind speeds and directions, and turbulence strengths, throughout the lower atmosphere and into the stratosphere. It has applications in various types of atmospheric physics. It can measure wind speeds with a temporal resolution of minutes, and with a height coverage of typically 500 metres to 20 km altitude (depending on power output). These radars can also be used in some cases to study winds and turbulence at altitudes of 60 to 90 km. Our latest installation has been a new radar at McGill University in Quebec, Canada. To learn more about them, click on the links to the left. One of the links ("Data") allows you to study recent results obtained from web sites of radars that we have been involved with. In the case of the CLOVAR radar, our personnel were involved in the radar construction, and we constructed the boundary-layer antennas. We also provided the analysis and display software. In the case of the Alwin and Saura radars, these were constructed by the Institute for Atmospheric Physics in Kuhlungsborn, Germany, and Mardoc Inc. provided the analysis and display software. In the case of the McGill radar, Mardoc Inc. supplied and installed the radar and supplied all of the analysis and display software.

Our other main product, the SKiYMET radar (all-SKY Interferometric METeor radar), is a meteor-detection and analysis instrument, and has been deployed in Canada, The USA, Brazil, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Australia, and Ascension Island, among others. Follow the links to the left to learn more about these radars.
