To support the KNMI mission the institute operates a weather radar network. The radar products of the network are essential for several tasks of KNMI, such as monitoring the meteorological conditions, performing research, and issuing forecasts and alerts for hazardous weather to the Dutch society. The radar network consists of two C-band Doppler weather radars which cover the whole of the Netherlands. These radars, together with radar data from neighboring countries, are primary input to the radar product processor that in turn generates various products and disseminates them to several groups of users. These radar products are considered primary geophysical meteorological data. In 2014 KNMI started a project called \Radar Sensor Replacement" (RASER) in which both weather radars will be renewed.
