Eclipse Receives FAA Certification Of Color Radar System

JRC-Built System Already Going Into Production Planes

Eclipse Aviation announced Tuesday the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has certified the new Eclipse Aviation Weather Radar System, a color radar system was designed by Eclipse and Japan Radio Co., Ltd. (JRC).

"The Eclipse Aviation Weather Radar System is another example of Eclipse’s ability to develop and certify complex technologies that continuously improve the value of our products," said Vern Raburn, president and CEO of Eclipse Aviation. "JRC has been an exceptional partner in the design and launch of this next-generation system, and we are pleased to offer Eclipse 500 pilots the outstanding situational weather awareness it delivers."

As ANN reported, Eclipse announced JRC as the new supplier of the standard color weather radar system onboard the Eclipse 500 at Oshkosh last year. Known primarily as a marine radar and radio producer, JRC is building the Eclipse-developed system as its first airborne radar.

The Albuquerque, NM-based planemaker tells ANN the Eclipse Aviation Weather Radar System provides tactical radar information on the Eclipse 500’s primary flight displays and integrates seamlessly with Avio NG, the aircraft’s integrated avionics and systems management system. Eclipse claims the new radar provides equivalent reliability and functionality to that of the existing Eclipse 500 weather radar, built by Honeywell.

Eclipse adds FAA certification occurred simultaneously with the incorporation of the new weather radar on the production lines. The first Eclipse 500 jet to feature the new Eclipse Aviation Weather Radar System received certification of airworthiness on February 23.
