Raytheon has made a series of short videos featuring Dr. Robin Tanamachi from Purdue and Stephen Frasier from UMass AMherst as they chase storms with Skyler - a mobile X-band phased array dual pol radar. While there are other mobile radars, very few are phased array and the few phased array ones are not dual pol. It also is a "low cost", software defined radar.



I believe this paper describes this radar: https://ams.confex.com/ams/35Radar/webprogram/Manuscript/Paper191899/AMS_CoRM2011_KOrzel.pdf
