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.
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,

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
