Honeywell IntuVue RDR-7000 Weather Radar System

Enabling Faster and More Informed Decision Making Before Bad Weather Strikes.

Honeywell’s IntuVue RDR-7000 Weather Radar System gives business aviation and helicopter pilots the clear and timely information they need to make safer, faster and more informed decisions before flying in bad weather and challenging environments.

Engineered to provide far superior reliability, accuracy and durability than legacy magnetron-based radar systems, the RDR-7000 offers customers the flexibility to remotely enable advanced software features to provide them the clearest view of weather conditions around the routes they’re accustomed to flying. 


Key Honeywell Advantages:

Next generation
A fully automated, higher resolution weather radar system with airborne ground/sea mapping system.

Reliable and efficient
Solid-state transmitters utilizing pulse compression provide reduced weight and power consumption, advanced coherent processing, and increased reliability over magnetron-based transmitters. 

Compact and easy to install
Best-in-class technology from our RDR-4000 IntuVue radar systems, integrated into a small, lightweight package.

Available software upgrades
Advanced features can be added at any time, including turbulence detection, advanced mapping, target detection and additional hazard features (lightning and hail detection), and forward looking (predictive) windshear.

Honeywell’s RDR-7000 improves pilot and passenger safety by providing new features in detection, analysis and avoidance.


Detection Analysis Avoidance
Automated 3D volumetric scans up to 60,000 ft and 320 NM ahead

Accurately analyzes and displays weather data

Provides pilot more time for optimal decision-making

First weather radar to detect turbulence within 60 NM Reduces pilot interactions needed to manipulate the radar and interpret the data Enhances safety and passenger comfort by avoiding turbulence
Predicts wind shear out to 10 NM, critical on final approaches Allows pilot to analyze slices of weather from 0 to 60,000 ft in 1,000 ft increments Saves pilots time and reduces workload
Identifies hail and lightning Provides data so pilots can make optimal routing adjustments Minimizes weather-related damage to aircraft
