The evaluation points out that technical modernization of the observation networks is a vital activity to support the expansion and upgrade of the prioritised stations of the network, expansion of the Doppler radar network, restoration of upper air observations, installation of wind profilers, improvement of hydrological stations and systems, and expansion and re-equipment of the agro-meteorological network.
Secondly, it aimed provision of wind profilers for all big airports, he said, adding currently Met Office is covering 97 districts of the country through existing equipment but the remaining 40 would be covered under the new system through the third project.

To provide temporal resolution between radiosonde launches, ground-based radar wind profilers have been developed.
To measure wind speed more accurately, Cornman and Robert Barron of NCAR have set up a trio of ground-based devices known as Doppler wind profilers. These instruments gauge wind speed and turbulence, in 180-foot increments, from the ground to altitudes as high as 1.5 miles.

Designed to assess instrumentation capabilities for quantifying the complex flows within wind farms, XPIA employed numerous scanning lidars, scanning radars, profiling lidars, and radiometers, as well as radiosondes, radar wind profilers, and a heavily instrumented 300-m meteorological tower.
