ARC was founded in 2006 by the UCAR Foundation to commercialize a new generation of advanced weather radars and solutions. Our 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 solutions. ARC is more than just a radar company. We also provides our customers with high-end Engineering and Scientific services on how to locate their radars for specific purposes and integrate them with other systems to provide the most accurate and complete solutions. ARC has a diverse client base, ranging from installations in the US, Middle East and Central Africa.
In 2016 NDP acquired ARC. ARC operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of NDP. By combining ARC’s leading radar technology with NDP’s proven engineering, marketing and program management experience we have created a leader in the global market for weather radars and Environmental Intelligence.
Our team boasts over 60 years of combined experience in the engineering, research, operations and radar application sectors. Our team consists of subject matter experts in problem solving in all areas of our industry, whether identifying a specific solution for simultaneous multiple applications, 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.
