Build Your Own Borealis Experiment

Borealis experiments are dictionaries in the programming language python, which contain all the information needed for the radar to decipher and operate different experiments. The different options below show a number of different keys possible to make an experiment. Choose your own options and click RUN to see how the different parameters effect the scan pattern or FOV of the radar. More information about Borealis experiments can be found below or in the Borealis documentation.
