The Naval Research Laboratory has recently developed a high power 94 GHz radar with scanning capability, WARLOC. One application has been to image clouds. New capabilities of WARLOC include imaging with greatly improved sensitivity and detail, the ability to detect much lower cloud returns, the capability of using chirped pulses with pulse compression for high range resolution, the rapid generation of high resolution three dimensional images, and the possibility of producing extremely fine scale images with stretch processing. WARLOC is now set up on the western shore of Chesapeake Bay. This letter presents some of the first cloud images obtained.
