BendixKing is now offering its Radar Renaissance Upgrade Program for RDR 2000 owners. The program provides an affordable path for owners to upgrade the capabilities of their RDR 2000. As part of the program, RDR 2000 units are inspected, disassembled and upgraded to the new RDR 2060 specification which provides 50% more transmit power, pilot workload reduction features and a one-year product warranty.
- Magnetron power increased 50% to 6kW – Extends weather detection capability
- Range expanded from 240NM to 320NM – Greater detection range increases weather avoidance flexibility
- Auto range limiting warns of blocked areas – Increased safety and situational awareness
- Sector Scan allows focus on priority storms – Greater situational awareness
- Auto tilt (requires an air data source) – Reduces pilot workload
In addition to the upgrade, BendixKing will bring radars already at mod level 3 or above to the current product mod level, as required, at no additional cost. The result will be a complete refresh and performance upgrade of the existing radar at a third the cost of a new unit.
The RDR 2060 is also available as a new production system.
