Version 5 is the current version of the data set. Version 4 is no longer available and has been superseded by Version 5. This product contains the calibrated received power from the Ku-band Radar of the Dual-frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR) aboard the core satellite of the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission. The Ku-radar scan pattern is simpler than that of the Ka-band Radar, and is similar to the TRMM PR. It only has "Normal Scan" (NS) swath consisting of 49 footprints cross-track in a scan and the footprint size is about 5 km in diameter. The scan swath is 245 km.
