BFR is Radar for measuring the 3D-Topography of material in a Blast Furnace. The horizontal resolution is 30cm and the height measurement accuracy is 10cm. The Radar allows to identify imperfections in the inputted material and to direct the refills. The Radar measures through dusty atmosphere and under noisy environmental conditions. It survives the hot environment inside the oven.
