Canadian air force fleet’s choice: “Rockwell Collins weather radar”
- June 6, 2018
Cascade Aerospace (Abbostford, British Columbia) has chosen Rockwell Collins to provide a modern weather radar for the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) C-130H fleet.
The upgrade will provide an enhanced level of weather threat detection to help RCAF pilots perform unique search and rescue missions using the C-130, assisting with the descent into visual flight conditions in order to define coastal boundaries or areas of rugged terrain.
“The RCAF is getting the latest in weather threat detection, all while gaining weight and reliability improvements compared to legacy systems,” said Lee Obst, managing director, Rockwell Collins Canada. “As an off-the-shelf, proven solution, it will have a minimal impact on the existing avionics and is an ideal fit for C-130 operators.”
