Weather radar rdr 1400c system

WEATHER RADAR (RDR 1400C) SYSTEM :


Purpose of the system

Purpose of the system:

  • The Primary use of this radar is to aid pilot in avoiding thunderstorms and associated turbulence.

  • The RDR1400C color vision weather radar system also has the capability for surface mapping and to receive signals from beacon Transponders.


Weather radar rdr 1400c system

  • The Primary system components of weather Radar system are

  • Receiver – Transmitter unit,

  • Radar Control panel,

  • Antenna Drive & Antenna Array and

  • Navigation concentrator.


Weather radar rdr 1400c system

  • There are two modes of operation :

  • 1. Normal mode of operation (Operation via Radar control panel)

  • 2. Back up mode of operation (Operation via MFD)


Function selector

Function selector:

  • OFF ---- Removes system power.

  • SBY ----system is operationally ready, no display (Standby mode).

  • TST ----Displays a test pattern without transmitting, identified by ‘TEST’ and ‘RT FAULT’.

  • ON -----Systems transmits in normal operation

  • 60 Narrows antenna scan from 120 deg to 60 deg. Putting back the switch to ‘ON’

  • position widens the antenna scan to 120 deg.


Antenna controls

Antenna Controls:

  • TILT Adjusts antenna tilt angle.

  • STAB OFF System transmits without antenna stabilization; ‘STB OFF’ displayed. This function is used in event of AHRS failure in flight.

  • Stabilization Range: ± 30 degs combined pitch, roll & tilt.


Primary mode selectors

Primary mode selectors:

  • Wx ----- Selects weather mode, the primary mode of operation. The ‘Wx’ appears at the bottom left of the display.

  • WxA -----Selects weather alert mode. The ‘ WxA’ appears at the bottom left of the display.

  • “TGT ALRT” flashes at the top left of the display, if red return exists within 25 miles beyond the display range.

  • SRCH ---- Activates Search1 mode, sea clutter rejection (20 miles range or less) or Search 2 mode, short range precision mapping (20 mile range or less) or Search3 mode, normal surface mapping. ‘SR1/SR2/SR3’ appears at the bottom left of the display.


Gain controls

Gain Controls:

  • SRCH GAIN : This rotary knob adjusts radar receiver gain when search mode is selected on control panel. Search gain value shall be displayed below the ‘SRCH GAIN’ title.
