MilViz and REX Simulations have partnered up to solve the difficult challenges related to a fully functional weather radar - combining a modernised airborne radar with sophisticated digital signal processing, resulting in a superior multi-functional hazardous weather detection and avoidance system.

Features

  • The WX Advantage Radar System is a unique, advanced weather radar system that can be used with ANY third party weather engine or freeware weather engine, as well as with the built-in weather of the flight simulator.
  • Compatible with Flight Simulator X, FSX:Steam Edition and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D. Each WX Advantage Radar licence allows activation for all three flight simulators!
  • This advanced radar system includes unique cloudscan and precipitation sync features that will dynamically sync precipitation. Never experience precipitation falling outside indicated radar echoes.
  • The radar includes a new wet runway feature. Though there may be radar echoes nearby, the runways near precipitation will appear as if rain had just fallen.
  • High resolution 3D precipitation density map, which takes advantage of video hardware acceleration for greater performance and level of detail.
  • High resolution precipitation cell data based on cloud density and other weather parameters at the location of each cloud.
  • Precise control of ambient precipitation in the region of the aircraft.
  • The system continuously measures four levels of precipitation: green for light precipitation, yellow for moderate, red for heavy, and magenta for severe precipitation and turbulence.
  • Because the system will continuously measure and sync precipitation, you will receive realistic and accurately placed radar echoes that precisely match depicted atmospheric conditions.
  • Turbulence 'intelligence' is built in to isolate potential radar echoes that may contain moderate to severe turbulence.
  • The WX Advantage Radar System includes full TILT functions to analyse the complete scale of storm structures in real time and accurately represents the effect of radar attenuation when larger more dense cells are in front of other cells – causing a rain shadow effect.
  • An intuitive, simple-to-use Aircraft Gauge Management Tool is also included! This tool allows the installation, editing, and removal of the 2D weather radar gauge for any default or third party aircraft in a few simple steps.
  • The Aircraft Gauge Management Tool includes FOUR different types of 2D gauge: Dark and Clean, Dark with Dirt, Light and Clean, Light with Dirt. You can select which version best represents the cockpit you are flying in as well as easily adjust the aspect ratio, size, and location of the radar gauge prior to opening the flight simulator.
  • The WX Advantage Radar supports multiple screens and can be undocked and placed on a second window.
  • Includes a full active transmitter/receiver range up to 160NM (FSX and P3D do not support ranges greater than 160NM).
  • The WX Advantage Radar includes gain features to help differentiate between weather and ground clutter.
  • The system includes test/diagnostics, WX (general weather), and WX/T (weather/turbulence) modes.
  • User Manual available to view here.

Unparalleled accuracy

The WX Advantage Radar is modelled after the Bendix RDR-4B system. State-of-the-art processing enables the WX Advantage system to provide higher standards of performance and reliability than have ever been achieved before.

We have achieved accurate placement of precipitation along the azimuth of the radar beam within its cone as you fly. You'll experience a realism never before seen in a radar gauge. As you fly in and out of precipitation it will match the display - accurately.


It's all in the display... and performance!

The WX Advantage Radar features a non-fading, high resolution colour display of precipitation data at selectable ranges up to 160 nautical miles (NM). The system continuously measures four levels of precipitation: green for light precipitation, yellow for moderate, red for heavy, and magenta for severe precipitation and turbulence.

 The system utilises a high resolution 3D precipitation density map, which takes advantage of video hardware acceleration for greater performance and level of detail.


Compatible with ALL third party and freeware weather engines, as well as default weather for FSX, FSX:Steam and Prepar3D!

Not only is the WX Advantage Radar compatible with FSX, FSX:Steam and Prepar3D, it is also compatible with ALL payware and freeware weather engines as well as payware and freeware aircraft! Each licence of the WX Advantage Radar allows activation for all three flight simulators.


An intuitive, simple-to-use Aircraft Gauge Management Tool is also included!

TESTIMONIALS
 
"Finally a panel add-on that is more than just a filler and cockpit eye candy. A weather radar that actually has practical use for those IFR sim pilots or those wanting to have a more realistic pilot experience in their sim. The WX Advantage Radar actually works, by reflecting the true precipitation density as well as the distance altitude and turbulence layers with a working tilt giving the pilot a good 3D mental picture of what's ahead. While using this radar I was able for the first time in a sim to accurately modify my flight attitude for weather avoidance. This radar from REX and Milviz brings their incredibly realistic environment via either a default or advanced weather theme, live weather engine or your own weather creation (via REX Weather Architect). The true utility and viability with the WX Advantage Radar is that it is not for just 1 aircraft in your hanger, but can be used in every aircraft or vehicle in the library! I have even used it on the X55 sailing yacht, which works great. In my opinion the WX Advantage Radar is a must have add-on." Murray Bremner
 
"I have been using both payware and freeware weather radars for years, always looking for "the one". I feel safe in saying that this WX radar from REX/Milviz seems to be it. It has all the right things going for it. You get real precipitation depicted in the unit as well as turbulence. It contains an aircraft management tool, so it's extremely easy to install in all of your payware and freeware aircraft. Plus you can use it with any weather engine. I've used it with REX and ASN as well as good old FSX & P3D weather and it works great! I can't wait to see developers start using it in the VC's of their add-ons. You can already use it in the Milviz 737-200, and it looks awesome. Great piece of software guys!" Glen Mobley
