The TWX670 Tactical Weather Detection System

Lightning is one of the first physical properties of a storm cell that can be detected, and unlike precipitation, lightning is the best determinant of dangerous thunderstorm activity. Avidyne’s new TWX670 is a second-generation lightningbased weather detection system that provides a simple and intuitive color-contoured display with instantaneous picture of surrounding weather.

Great Accuracy Means Truly Tactical Weather Detection

The TWX670 is the first and only lightning-based, real time, tactical, color weather avoidance solution. It accurately detects and clearly displays electrical discharges–the primary indicator of thunderstorms–in real time, regardless of aircraft maneuvering. With its significantly-improved accuracy over previous-generation lightning detection systems, the TWX670 provides true tactical weather avoidance in the critical 0 – 25nm range, making it a perfect complement to the strategic benefits of satellite-based datalink weather.

Completing the Picture

Storm cells and their intensities are displayed in color contours eliminating the guess-work associated with interpreting legacy weather displays. Providing a colorcontoured map of a thunderstorm’s electrical activity over time, the TWX670 easily allows the pilot to determine the areas of greatest intensity, and clearly identify areas with potential for convective wind shear, turbulence, microbursts, hail and icing.

TWxCell Mode™

With the TWX670’s color-contoured TWxCell Mode, each cell grid is displayed as a hexagonal array of cell weights (colors). Color-filled hexagons highlight the most intense regions of thunderstorm activity, presenting a visually contoured color display with dynamic sectors. TWxCell Mode permits the pilot to quickly identify the most intense regions of thunderstorm activity.

The TWX670 combines the data of all lightning activity occurring over a running three-minute period, regardless of the number of strikes. This provides a meaningful dynamic map of the lightning discharge rate and density for immediate visual acquisition of critical information. With the TWX670, there’s no need to spend time observing discrete events to determine the level of thunderstorm activity.
