About Us

ARC was founded in 2006 by the UCAR Foundation to commercialize a new generation of advanced weather radars (hardware, software and customized products). These systems are simple to maintain, calibrate and operate while still maintaining accuracy and reliability. We are committed to our customers and seek to supply our clients with the best end to end solution for their needs.


Our Executive Team:

Our management team boasts over 50 years of combined experience in the engineering, research, and radar development sectors. Every member of our management team is an expert in problem solving in all areas of our industry, whether searching for the best way to streamline production, or developing the latest technology, or seeking the best solutions to meet challenging deadlines.

Additionally, the team has implemented accountability on every level which translates to results without excuses for our customers. Our clients can expect nothing less than a professionalism and dedication to every part of their project: in other words, ARC seeks not just to be a supplier but, a committed partner.
