At Weibel Scientific, we are there to measure flight, be it higher, faster, further. Whatever the conditions, our unique Doppler radar systems can measure the velocity, and dynamic behavior of one or several moving objects in real time – even when it involves space flight.

Through our important partnership with Northrop Grumman, we started working with NASA on the Return to Flight mission and the launch of Space Shuttle Discovery in 2005. Today Weibel radars are an important tool in ensuring astronaut safety by monitoring tiny pieces of foam or other debris during the launch and the shuttle’s flight through the atmosphere. The accuracy and precision of Weibel radars contribute actively to the prevention of a disaster like the Columbia accident in 2003. In addition to this life-saving work, our radars are involved in protecting the environment by tracking the position of fallen debris.
