SINGAPORE, 16 Feb. 2016. Rockwell Collins has delivered its first RTA-4100 MultiScan Weather Radar with enhanced surface search modes to Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) in Sacheon, South Korea, for the medevac variant of the Korean Utility Helicopter (KUH) – marking a first in the Asia-Pacific region.
“Our RTA-4100 MultiScan Weather Radar will provide enhanced safety and mission capability during the highly adverse weather conditions in which the KUH helicopter will be required to operate while performing its critical emergency medical evacuation missions,” says Jim Walker, vice president and manager director, Asia Pacific, for Rockwell Collins.
The RTA-4100 MultiScan Weather Radar’s automatic tilt and gain management reduces crew workload over conventional weather radar systems by automatically reducing ground clutter for the comprehensive detection and display of weather-related hazards.
The solid-state RTA-4100 offers high reliability and reduced size, weight, and power over other weather radars, officials say. The RTA-4100 features advanced modes for maritime search operations which, when combined with enhanced shoreline depictions, ensures accurate and timely recovery/transport during critical medical emergencies.
Rockwell Collins develops and deploys communication and aviation electronic solutions for both commercial and government applications, including flight deck avionics, cabin electronics, mission communications, simulation and training, and information management.
