RDR-4000 is operating in the X-Band airborne navigation and weather radar. The radar uses a low power solid state transmitter and pulse compression technology. It includes high-resolution ground mapping, Doppler beam sharpened precision ground mapping and sectored skin paint modes.
The civil version RDR-4000 is used internationally in many aircraft. The military version RDR-4000M with special display of refueling aircraft is installed e.g. on the C-17 Globemaster, C-130 Hercules, and Lockheed Martins LM-100J. The military system received the designation of AN/APS-150.
