Abstract : A detailed discussion is presented of the design, development, construction, and performance of an experimental model of a nuclear/weather cloud detector unit to be used with a radar set such as the AN/CPS-9, and to be utilized as an electronic device for the detection and analysis of nuclear clouds or of slow and small changes in weather patterns. The equipment receives radar weather data from the radar PPI display, stores, and compares it with real-time radar information. The difference between real-time and stored data as displayed by the indicator unit represents movement of information, whether it be weather cloud or the instantaneous occurrence of a nuclear cloud.
