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.
