GRT Adds Lightning Detection to Horizon HX EFIS

GRT's 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 HX’s existing features, which include synthetic vision, ARINC-429 interface and FLIR input.
