PLASMA DISPLAY DISCONTINUED
Weather Avoidance System detects and analyzes the
electrical activity emanating from thunderstorms
within a 200 nautical mile (nm) radius of the
aircraft. A unique graphic display plots an
accurate, reliable and easily-interpreted picture of
electrical activity, that you can use to
circumnavigate the hazards associated with

be slaved directly to an HSI or compass system with
a standard stepper or synchro-output. The display is
available with a New Ultra Bright LED Display with a
single microprocessor-based circuit board that
employs Digital Signal Processing, to ensure that
the truest possible storm image is displayed. The
microprocessor constantly monitors the performance
of the entire system, from the Sensor to the Display
for proper function.
The maintenance-free Sensor is weather-sealed and
mounts on the outside of the aircraft fuselage. STRIKE
unlike any other system, uses Broad-band Digital
Sampling. A greater bandwidth delivers vastly more
information for improved signal fidelity and
inherently superior noise rejection. This translates
into a clearer definition of weather activity,
without false or misleading indications.
A must read when thinking about lightning
detection in your aircraft.

REVOLUTIONARY BREAKTHROUGH FOR STRIKE
INSIGHT'S STABILIZATION MODULE
ELIMINATES THE NEED FOR SLAVED COMPASS SYSTEM
Traditionally, weather mapping systems require
connection to the aircraft's slaved compass system
to maintain correct data orientation through heading
changes. Recognizing that not all aircraft are
equipped with a slaved compass system, Insight
developed the Stabilization Module.
Stabilization Module provides data to the STRIKE
FINDER®, enabling displayed lightning strike
information to rotate relative to heading changes.
Operation of the Stabilization Module is automatic;
no field configuration or calibration are required.
REVOLUTIONARY STABILIZATION MODULE;
- Eliminates the
need for a slaved compass system.
- Is a totally
self-contained sensor and data processor.
- Contains no
- Gone forever
are those periodic overhauls that are necessary
with common rotating gyro systems.
The Stabilization Module contains all solid state
components; there are no moving parts. New software
algorithms process data from the enclosed sensors to
determine heading change. Insight has developed this
state-of-the-art stabilization system, by
integrating both the motion sensor and the data
processor into one miniature module. Benefits
include reduction in cost, complexity and weight of
a conventional system.
As a factory installed option, the Stabilization
Module is now only installed within the STRIKE
FINDER® housing, deriving its power from and
providing its signals directly to the STRIKE
FINDER® processor. Insight recommends the STRIKE
FINDER® System with the Factory Option, even for
slave-compass equipped aircraft.
installation is simpler, faster and offers enhanced
reliability by eliminating dependence on the
maintenance-intensive rotating gyro.
Each Stabilization Module is individually factory
calibrated and tested to insure proper operation
under all conditions.
