Antarctic Syowa MST/IS Radar (PANSY) Program
 An MST/IS radar can measure three dimensional wind velocities in the lower and middle atmospheres as well as plasma parameters in the ionosphere. It is a very powerful tool for quantitatively understanding the linkage between the upper and lower atmospheres. With an aim to have the first MST/IS radar in Antarctica at Syowa Station, we have achieved development works in the basic radar technologies, antenna structures, and onsite survey of the antenna field.
