protection and turbulence detection. The RTA-4100
accurately depicts weather and weather-related hazard
events at any location around the globe.
This capability gives flight crews a more-accurate
depiction of weather and turbulence hazards that
significantly reduces flight deck workload and training for
pilots. The RTA-4100 MultiScan radar supports integration
of new sources of data as they become available.
Rockwell Collins markets two other systems: The TWR850/WXR-840 package, and the WXR-2100.
The solid-state TWR-850 delivers ranges to more than
300 nautical miles in a smaller package offering many of
the same features as its bigger hangar mate.
The solid-state WXR-2100 MultiScan ThreatTrack
detects and analyzes adverse weather phenomena and
automatically displays weather that is a threat to aircraft.
Its advanced technology makes optimum adjustments to
maximize the "probability of detecting" weather hazards
during all phases of flight, reducing long deviations and
delays to the gate and ensuring a safer, smoother and
more-efficient journey. And it can track up to 40 individual
cells and show their movement.
Plan Ahead Today
Plentiful - and an option for any aircraft
Turn in almost any direction and a system exists to
bring datalink weather into the cockpit. Virtually every
avionics maker offers an option to use ADS-B In - the
source of the FAA's free-weather FIS-B - either directly
onto a cockpit display or to a portable device.
Many of the options for datalink weather radar in the
cockpit are integral to some solutions for equipping with
ADS-B. Some provide their own display, some can use
a cockpit display - and others employ Wi-Fi capabilities
that allow the display to wirelessly connect to a portable
device such as an Android phone or tablet, an Apple
iPhone or iPad, or on a dedicated portable display.
The options are many, the benefits numerous. And as
a complement to airborne weather radar, they give flight
crews a view unavailable from the airborne weather radar
installed in the aircraft. q

ADS-B is a real time aircraft locating system that
allows Air Traffic Control Towers as well as other
aircraft to locate your current position.
It is FAA mandate that by January 1st,
2020 aircraft must be compliant with an
ADSB-Out Configuration. (14 CFR §91.227)
