Westinghouse sells shear radar

June 24, 1993

The local Westinghouse Electronic Systems Group announced the sale of its first wind shear detection radar to a commercial airline yesterday.

Miami-based cargo carrier Arrow Air and parent International Air Leases Inc. have ordered 20 MR-3000 radar systems from the Westinghouse unit based in Linthicum, with an option for 100 more.

Arrow President Richard Haberly said the units cost about $100,000 each, and the full order would likely exceed $10 million. He said the radar warns pilots when they are flying into wind shear conditions in time to change their course. Wind shear is the sudden shift of wind in direction and speed.
