HORIZONTAL SITUATION RADAR

Provides a 360 degree horizontal scan up to a radius of 50 miles around your aircraft. It is common for close formations of aircraft to appear as a single 'trace' or dot, which is where the variable range search comes into effect ... Switch between a radius of 50 miles, 30 miles 10 miles and 2 miles (the range is shown in the bottom right-hand corner of the display). Note that the radar only shows relevant data when the aircraft is in either air-to-air or air-to-ground mode.

BEYOND VISUAL RANGE RADAR

BVR radar is used for long range scans and to target long range air-to-air missiles. A narrow beam can scan up to 120 miles (180 miles if the area is clutter-free - for example, the ocean). The BVR radar can determine whether an aircraft is hostile but the immense distance means that precise tracking data will not be given.

MOVING MAP DISPLAY (MMD)

A digitally-generated map which moves relative to your aircraft in the center of the display. A white line indicates your aircraft's direction, and its heading is given. The MMD also shows authorized ground targets (flashing red and white) and airborne radar traces of any aircraft relevant to your location. A full map of your theater of operation is always available.
