Radar Installation at UT Arlington
The first CASA radar was installed atop Carlisle Hall at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) on October 28, 2012. The installation marked the culmination of months of coordination between CASA engineers, UTA and its contractors and the North Central Texas Council of Governments. This is the first of four radar installations planned for the area over the next several months.
