Radarscope presentation of airborne weather radar.
A primary radar designed to locate turbulent clouds within a wide area ahead of the aircraft to discriminate between safe and potentially turbulent areas in cloud formations. It provides a pictorial representation of turbulent and dangerous clouds located along the flight path and warns the pilot well in advance. The secondary function of the radar is to aid navigation by a map-painting mode and avoidance of high ground. Airborne weather radars operate in the SHF (superhigh frequency) band, whose wavelength lies between 10 cm and 3 cm (3.93 in and 1.81 in).
