AN/APN-241

The AN/APN-241 or LPCR (Low Power Color Radar) is operating in X-Band weather and navigational radar for transport aircrafts. It replaces the AN/APN-59 radar.

The AN/APN-241 radar was developed specifically for the C-130 “Hercules” mission and operational requirements. It offers high-resolution ground mapping that enables accurate low-level navigation and precision aerial drops, predictive windshear detection in all weather conditions, and situational awareness for all-weather formation flying.
