Powerful, sensitive radars like NEXRAD and short wavelength radars like airborne X-band radars, are also efficient at detecting birds, bats, and insects, seen as broad, diffuse patches of low re^ flectivity in fair weather.
As the study of this technology has progressed, so have new technologies been developed such as Doppler radar, NEXRAD, LIDAR, SONAR, and GPS.
Westbrook and Eyster obtained 15 days of NEXRAD data from the NWS installation at Brownsville, Texas, to see if they could use it to detect flights of corn earworm moths during peak migration times from cornfields in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.
The NTSB has cited two fatal weather-related aircraft accidents in which NEXRAD images were displayed to the pilot that were presented as one-minute old on the age indicator, but contained information that was up to five to eight minutes behind the real time conditions.
This research collectively suggests that NEXRAD can be used to broadly identify migratory hotspots on military installations, as well as improve flight safety on those installations with an aviation-based military mission.
