Introducing the WX Advantage Radar

Unparalleled accuracy.

The WX Advantage Radar is modeled after the Bendix RDR-4B system. State-of-the-art processing enables the WX Advantage system to provide higher standards of performance and reliability than have ever been achieved before.

We have achieved accurate placement of precipitation along the azimuth of the radar beam within its cone as you fly. You'll experience a realism never before seen in a radar gauge. As you fly in and out of precipitation it will match the display - accurately.

It's all in the display... and performance!

The WX Advantage Radar features a non-fading, high resolution color display of precipitation data at selectable ranges up to 160 nautical miles (NM). The system continuously measures four levels of precipitation: green for light precipitation, yellow for moderate, red for heavy, and magenta for severe precipitation and turbulence.

The system utilizes a high resolution 3D precipitation density map, which takes advantage of video hardware acceleration for greater performance and level of detail.

Compatible with ALL 3rd-party and freeware weather engines as well as default weather for FSX, FSX:Steam and Prepar3D!

Not only is the WX Advantage Radar compatible with FSX, FSX:Steam and Prepar3D, it is also compatible with ALL payware and freeware weather engines as well as payware and freeware aircraft! Each license of the WX Advantage Radar allows activation for all three flight simulators.

An intuitive, simple to use Aircraft Gauge Management Tool is also included!

This tool allows the installation, editing, and removal of the 2D weather radar gauge for any default or 3rd-party aircraft within a few simple steps.

The Aircraft Gauge Management Tool includes FOUR different types of 2D gauges: Dark and Clean, Dark with Dirt, Light and Clean, Light with Dirt. You may select which version best represents the cockpit you are flying in as well as easily adjust the aspect ratio, size, and location of the radar gauge prior to opening the flight simulator.

The radar system includes unique cloudscan and precipitation sync features that will dynamically sync precipitation.

Because the system will continuously measure and sync precipitation, you will receive realistic and accurately placed radar echoes that precisely match depicted atmospheric conditions. Never experience precipitation falling outside indicated radar echoes. The radar also includes a nifty wet runway feature. Though there may be radar echoes nearby, the runways near precipitation will appear as if rain had just fallen.

Realistic TILT Functionality.

The WX Advantage Radar System includes full TILT functions! The system will analyze the complete scale of storm structures in real-time and accurately represents the effect of radar attenuation when larger more dense cells are in front of other cells – causing a rain shadow effect.

The WX Advantage Radar is freely offered as a customizable gauge to 3rd-party aircraft developers.

The 3D version of the WX Advantage Radar is freely available to all 3rd-party developers who wish to integrate the gauge within their aircraft. We make it easy for 3rd-party developers to modify the color, texture, text, and the model of the gauge to fit within their paradigm and methodology. Please contact REX Simulations for more information.

Milviz Aircraft - Ready for the WX Advantage Radar right now!

Here at Milviz, we have upgraded three of our aircraft to include compatibility for the 3D & 2D versions of the WX Advantage Radar: The 737-200C, the B55, and the C310. All three aircraft are compatible and ready for the WX Advantage Radar, including 3D placement within the virtual cockpit.

Features

   The WX Advantage Radar System is a unique, advanced weather radar system that can be used with ANY 3rd-party weather engine, freeware weather engine, as well as the built-in weather of the flight simulator.

   Compatible with Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X, FSX:Steam Edition and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D. Each license of the WX Advantage Radar allows activation for all three flight simulators!

   This advanced radar system includes unique cloudscan and precipitation sync features that will dynamically sync precipitation. Never experience precipitation falling outside indicated radar echoes.

   The radar includes a new wet runway feature. Though there may be radar echoes nearby, the runways near precipitation will appear as if rain had just fallen.

   High resolution 3D precipitation density map, which takes advantage of video hardware acceleration for greater performance and level of detail.

   High resolution precipitation cell data based on cloud density and other weather parameters at the location of each cloud.

   Precise control of ambient precipitation in the region of the aircraft.

   The system continuously measures four levels of precipitation: green for light precipitation, yellow for moderate, red for heavy, and magenta for severe precipitation and turbulence.

   Because the system will continuously measure and sync precipitation, you will receive realistic and accurately placed radar echoes that precisely match depicted atmospheric conditions.

   Turbulence “intelligence” is built-in to isolate potential radar echoes that may contain moderate to severe turbulence.

   The WX Advantage Radar System includes full TILT functions to analyze the complete scale of storm structures in real-time and accurately represents the effect of radar attenuation when larger more dense cells are in front of other cells – causing a rain shadow effect.

   An intuitive, simple to use Aircraft Gauge Management Tool is also included! This tool allows the installation, editing, and removal of the 2D weather radar gauge for any default or 3rd-party aircraft within a few simple steps.

   The Aircraft Gauge Management Tool includes FOUR different types of 2D gauges: Dark and Clean, Dark with Dirt, Light and Clean, Light with Dirt. You may select which version best represents the cockpit you are flying in as well as easily adjust the aspect ratio, size, and location of the radar gauge prior to opening the flight simulator.

   The WX Advantage Radar supports multiple screens and can be undocked and placed on a second window.

   Includes a full active transmitter/receiver range up to 160NM. (FSX and Prepar3D does not support ranges greater than 160NM)

   The WX Advantage Radar includes gain features to help differentiate between weather and ground clutter.

   The system includes test/diagnostics, WX (general weather), and WX/T (weather/turbulence) modes.
