Development of a high resolution, low cost, short range precipitation radar system (MARG)
Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The MARG project addresses the need to increase the competitiveness of the SME partners by developing an accurate, real-time and user friendly measurement system for monitoring spatial distribution and intensity of rain in rural and urban scale. By providing the innovative system and the data acquired via the system to business that are directly impacted by rain consortium SMEs intend to capture a significant share of the weather market that is valued at € 200 billion only in Europe. SMEs that cover the supply chain want to take an advantage of early market penetration and outrun the competition. During the project a pre-competitive prototype will be crafted by partners for single radar and network application. Partner SMEs strongly believe that it will turn to a marketable product by 2014 and within the first 5 years of exploitation it will gain a total profit of € 1.5 M for them.
