GRT Adds Lightning Detection to Horizon HX EFIS


GRT Avionics, a unit of Grand Rapids Technologies, Inc., has received approval for its Stormscope WX-500 software interface from L3 Communications – Avionics Systems. The interface is designed to integrate the Stormscope WX-500 with the Horizon HX electronic flight instrument system multi-function display.

This interface brings real-time lightning detection to the Horizon HX-equipped cockpit, says VP Todd Stehouwer. It allows tactical avoidance of embedded thunderstorms and enhances the data link weather capability already in place.

The Stormscope WX-500 input is added to the Horizon HXs existing features, which include synthetic vision, ARINC-429 interface and FLIR input.
