WEATHER RADAR SYSTEM

Purpose

The weather radar (WXR) system supplies these visual

indications:

Weather conditions

Windshear events

Land contours.

Description

WXR operates on the same principle as an echo. The WXR system transmits radio frequency (RF) pulses in a 180 degree area forward of the airplane. Objects reflect the pulses back to the receiver. The receiver processes the return signal to show weather, terrain, and windshear events.

Display

The WXR returns show in four different colors on the navigation displays (ND). Colors of the indications give the crew information about the intensity of the returns.
