In our march to added TWS on 18 December for the Hornet, we've now added SCAN RAID and EXP (Expand) sub-modes to TWS.
Expand (EXP). When there is an L&S target in TWS mode and EXP is pressed, the display will change to a 10 nm range with a 20-degree azimuth scan. The display range on the right side of the display will indicate the 10 nm scan area (for example: 30 at the top and 20 at the bottom). Despite the 20-degree azimuth scan, the legend will still indicate the previous setting and the b-sweep line will not freeze on the L&S.
This mode simply zooms in on that area, but the TWS scan operation, target rankings, etc. does not change.
Filed tracks that are outside of the display will be on the edge of the display and flash.
SCAN RAID Mode. This is selected from the SCAN RAID button on the throttle and it concentrates the TWS scan to a small area to break out closely spaced targets. When enabled, the scan is centered on the L&S target. It is displayed in a standard range and azimuth format in 10 nm zoomed in display at 22-degrees of azimuth, with a 2-bar elevation. The b-sweep line is frozen on the L&S target and SCAN RAID appears at the bottom of the display.
When in this mode, track files and raw hits are displayed. If a new L&S target is designated, the RAID SCAN will move to that location. Filed tracks that are outside of the display will be on the edge of the display and flash.
When selected, AUTO scan centering is automatically selected and cannot be unselected while in this mode.
We will continue de-bugging these and TWS as a whole, and we still need to add L&S HUD indications when in TWS.
