Cloud seeding is carried out by instrumented aircraft equipped with a reagent seeding and shooting devices and on-board equipment for measuring navigational parameters and the parameters of the clouds and the atmosphere that are  necessary for decision making, implementation and monitoring of the results of seeding effects. An integral part of technical means to ensure the success of the organization and conducting works on artificial control of rainfall are automated digital radar systems, built on the basis of the two-wavelength weather radar MRL-5.
