Features

Flexible display options

The Stormscope Model WX-500 displays lightning information at ranges of 25 nm to 200 nm and easily interfaces with most popular Multi-Function Displays (MFD). Lightning may be shown in strike or cell mode and is viewable on the MFD as a dedicated page or an overlay on the moving map.

Stormscope Model WX-950G

The Stormscope Model WX-950G is specifically designed to monitor lightning from the ground and can operate in cell (to understand storm intensity) or strike (to identify beginnings of a storm) mode. Ranges of 25, 50, 100 and 200 nm are available in 360-degree view or 120-degree forward-looking view.

Stormscope Model WX-1000 Series

Like all Stormscope systems, the WX-1000 Series provides early detection of storm cells, and displays lightning at ranges up to 200 nm, allowing pilots to monitor thunderstorm activity even before they leave the ground. Operators may choose from four selectable ranges, two separate views, a built-in checklist, and a timer to keep track of elapsed time on approach. The WX-1000E Series can be configured to display lightning on an EFIS or radar indicator.
