coplane scanning

A radar scanning pattern defined by a fixed plane tilted from the horizontal.

Two radars performing dual-Doppler measurements typically scan a coplane that contains both radars and is tilted a few degrees from horizontal. The azimuth and elevation angles of each radar must be varied simultaneously and in a coordinated way to scan the coplane.
