WEATHER RADAR FOR LIGHT CENTERLINE THRUST AIRCRAFT

An airborne weather radar installation has been developed for light centerline thrust aircraft. A pod was developed and tested to attach to the underside of the wing and provide a location for a light weight antenna-receiver-transmitter unit. The offering of this installation to operators of these aircraft provides additional capability in the detection and avoidance of significant weather systems.
