Sales of the L-3 Avionics Systems’ Stormscope weather mapping system have surpassed 50,000 units. The Stormscopes detect all lightning activity, not just cloud to ground strikes like other systems, and provide real-time thunderstorm depiction.
Stormscope systems are particularly useful during the cumulus and mature stages of a thunderstorm when windshear, turbulence and lightning are most likely, L-3 officials say.
L-3 Avionics Systems manufactures several Stormscope models – from stand alone lightning displays to systems that integrate with MFDs and EFIS – each designed to fit within existing cockpits and budgets.
