Corfu Radar Head The weather channel  (Weather data receiver and processor) includes a separate S-Band receiver  which  processes weather informations, with 6 layers separation capability . This channel includes just one receiver with AMTD processor and extractor VERA- Alenia.

Radar Head Processor (RHP)

One of the most significantly system characteristics is the computer MARA which processes the  informations from the PSR/MSSR receivers, together with the target filtering and combining operation, sends these to Display. Also , it processes the weather channel informations.The RHP consists from two computers MARA in Ηot Master/ Stand-by arrange .

The informations tranfer via Radio Link to the APP Center, the Airport area in which has been installed the processors and console work stations APP, for Air Traffic Controllers using.
