Figure 1: 3D- Weather pattern
A processing box is required to be installed in the avionics rack to process the radar data and present the required picture to the display (and hence the pilot). This is installed beside all of the other common aircraft “boxes” such as the SSR- transponder, the FMS, etc.
For this task extensive and convenient software (e.g. for this one 3D- weather picture shown in the graphic) was already developed.
