MR-3000

MR-3000 MODAR (Modular Aviation Radar) is operating in the X-band airborne forward-looking Doppler navigation and weather radar for civil and transport aircraft. It provides general weather information, microburst and windshear prediction. The windshear detection elements were derived from NASA technology.

The military version MR-4000 includes mapping and beacon capabilities. It is installed in newer C-130 aircraft under the designation AN/APN-241(V).

The FAA supplemental type certification took place in 1995. The Production of the radar was discontinued in 2009.
