Defined
Defined

RADAR

  • Radio Detection and Ranging

  • A system that uses radio waves to detect and determine the direction, distance, and/or speed of objects and map them

    SENSOR

  • A device that responds to a physical stimulus and transmits a resulting impulse (as for measurement or operating a control)


Radar altimeter
Radar Altimeter

Gives the absolute height of the Plane.

    Some Examples from Honeywell…


Position
Position

  • Measures position of Flaps, engine nozzle, landing gear, and pilot input controls.

  • This device is a Honeywell RVDT weighing in at 1/3 pound.


Pressure
Pressure

  • Measures gage, absolute and differential pressures.

  • Used in bleed air, fuel, engine oil and hydraulic fluid pressures applications.

  • Weighs about 5 oz without addition of fitting.


Force
Force

  • Used for pilot input measurements, servo-loop feedback, overload protection and payload measurement.

  • Weighs 1.75 lbs

  • Torque sensor weighs about 2 lbs.


Radar sensor
Radar Sensor

  • Informs the pilot that the enemy has radar pointed at them.

  • An example is the ALR-69. It is a basic fuzz buster for the military.

  • Has a 3 by 9 in Cathode Ray Tube.

  • Cost less then $15000 per unit and weighs approximately 42 lbs.
