Designing a radar to detect hazardous wind shear is treated in two steps. First, a field experiment was conducted to determine the strength of the return signal, and statistical results from this experiment are given. Second, these results are used in design of a clear-air radar for shear detection. The tradeoff between wavelength, transmitted power, and antenna size is shown. A simple display technique using a plan shear indicator is also described.
