Abstract—A simulation system consisting of display module, control module and process module for the control and display unit(CDU) of airborne weather radar is designed and tested in this paper. Taking advantage of virtual instrument technology as well as practical aeronautical characteristics, the designed system can receive, process and intuitively reflect the meteorological information to fight crews. Adopting the function and algorithm multiplexing, the comprehensive and integrated system is successfully realized with efficiency and fidelity, in which major workings modes of practical weather radar including weather mode, windshear mode, turbulence mode and map mode are provided. The testing results indicate the system performs favorable interactivity, stability and real-time property which meet the requirements of simulation. The system can be widely used for training and teaching and is transplantable to similar simulation systems.
