IntuVue® Honeywell's family of advanced 3-D weather radar systems for air transport, business and military aircraft.

Did you know weather costs the aerospace industry billions of dollars each year? Weather-related delays & cancellations cost the U.S. economy $18B in 2007. Turbulence-related incidents cost airlines on average $150K/incident. Total cost to the industry exceeds $100M/year. Business jet operators experience approximately 180,000 flights that are delayed due to weather, costing an estimated $340M.

Key Benefits

IntuVue® helps to minimize the financial impact of severe storm activity while providing maximum aircraft efficiency, safety and performance over traditional radar systems:

  • Enables rerouting sooner through longer-range weather hazard detection.
  • Increases crew efficiency by reducing pilot workload through automatic operation and intuitive displays.
  • Provides greater safety using the most advanced predictive windshear and MOPS certified enhanced turbulence detection and alerting capability.
  • Enhances crew and product performance through fleet commonality, increased reliability and advanced weather hazard detection and analysis.

These features and advanced technology enable pilots to quickly identify and analyze weather hazards at up to 320 nautical miles, for improved safety, fuel efficiency and on-time arrivals. Pilots have demonstrated a 26 percent improvement in decision making using IntuVue™.

Platforms & Applications

The RDR-4000 is the first member of the IntuVue® family of weather radar products. The technological advances and proven performance of the RDR-4000 prompted the next-generation of advanced weather radar products – IntuVue —as the trusted family of surveillance products that will meet your needs today and well into the future.

Advanced Flight Safety That Offers Peace of Mind

Honeywell’s volumetric 3-D scanning and pulse compression technologies provide pilots a more complete view of the weather than radar systems based on outdated, point-and-shoot technology. Weather detection is now fully automated, reducing pilot workload. Hazard assessments based on flight path data are continually updated, allowing pilots to make safer, more informed route decisions sooner and with more precision. Proven in commercial applications, no other onboard weather radar system provides a clearer more accurate view of weather.

The most advanced weather hazard detection and avoidance system available:

  • Volumetric 3-D scanning and pulse compression technologies provide the greatest resolution of weather and true hazard activity over conventional radar systems
  • 3-D buffer stores the weather activity, automatically corrected for earth curvature, to display 180° and 320 nmi from the aircraft
  • World-wide operation, land or sea, the automatic scan and ground clutter extraction automatically displays true storm activity ensuring the most reflective part of the storm is always displayed
  • Provides inherent over-flight protection with an aggressive down-tilt and 3-D scanning process
  • Hazardous cells below the aircraft flight level are identified earlier and displayed longer than traditional radar systems
  • First system certified to the FAA Minimum Operating Performance Standard (MOPS) for enhanced turbulence
  • Hazard upgrade provides extended turbulence detection range of 60 nm
  • Advanced predictive windshear detection and alarming
  • Proven to reduce predicted windshear false alarms by >90 percent
  • Hazard upgrade provides predictive hail and lightning warnings which aid pilots in avoiding convective weather and reduces possible aircraft damage
  • Increases system reliability by >90 percent
  • Reduces system weight by 25 percent (16 lbs) for single channel systems and 30 percent (30 lbs) for dual channel systems
  • Fleet Commonality – available as a federated system or as part of an integrated surveillance system
  • Reduces training time and costs because of the intuitive displays and automatic operation – there are no manual tilt requirements
  • Simplified operation reduces pilot workload
