Understand Weather Better to Reduce Weather Delays
Reducing Weather Delays
Advanced display of storms and lightning can assist with routing and passenger comfort. Honeywell offers a range of weather radar products for any aircraft.
Weather can be difficult to predict, and pilots continually run the risk of encountering unexpected weather like hail or thunderstorms, which can impact the safety and comfort of all onboard. Since the 1950s, Honeywell has produced airborne weather radar systems that help pilots navigate and survey the aircraft environment to ensure a safe and efficient route.
Honeywell’s IntuVue Weather Radar Systems can detect all weather from 0 to 60,000 feet and up to 320 nautical miles in front of an airplane. Our systems provide intuitive displays of weather and alerts throughout all phases of flight, allowing pilots to make decisions to optimize flight paths. We also increasingly build automation into our systems in order to reduce intervention required by the pilot and overall pilot workload.
The IntuVue RDR-4000 3D Weather Radar System has been used in Air Transport aircraft for more than 7 years, helping airlines around the world protect their passengers and fleets from weather related hazards. Now we are now bringing the proven technology to business aviation, regional transport and helicopter aircraft with our newest addition, the IntuVue RDR-7000 Weather Radar System.
We have also introduced the IntuVue RDR-84K Band Radar System, which is ideal for the emerging urban air mobility segment and even for general aviation aircraft. This next generation of radar is on the cutting edge of vehicle and aircraft automation, bringing much more information that allows connected and automated vehicles to “see” the world in a whole new way.
