sector scan

A radar scanning procedure in which the antenna sweeps through an interval of azimuth less than the full 360° at a fixed elevation angle.

Often the azimuth extent of a sector scan may be only a few degrees in order to concentrate the observations on a particular storm or region of a storm.
