Antenna

  1. Antenna Pedestal

The WXR antenna sends the RF pulses and receives the RF returns. The R / T gets air data inertial reference unit (ADIRU) pitch and roll data for antenna stabilization.

Receiver / Transmitter (R / T)

The primary component of the WXR system is the weather radar R / T. The WXR R / T does these functions:

Transmits RF pulses

Processes the RF returns

Detects windshear events and sends warnings and cautions to the flight crew

Supplies the WXR display data.
