The Hurricane Imaging Radiometer (HIRAD) is an airborne passive microwave radiometer designed to provide high resolution, wide swath imagery of surface wind speed in tropical cyclones from a low profile planar antenna with no mechanical scanning. Wind speed and rain rate images from HIRAD's first field campaign (GRIP, 2010) are presented here followed, by a discussion on the performance of the newly installed thermal control system during the 2012 HS3 campaign. The paper ends with a discussion
more &raquo; ... n the next generation dual polarization HIRAD antenna (already designed) for a future system capable of measuring wind direction as well as wind speed. Index Terms-HIRAD, hurricane wind speed, imaging radiometer.
