RDA/RPG Build 18.2 Training



The Warning Decision Training Division has developed operator training to support the Radar Data Acquisition Unit/Radar Product Generator (RDA/RPG) Build 18.2 deployment. This build has multiple features that support operations, including:

  • Introduction of Mid-Volume Rescan of Low-Level Elevations (MRLE)
    • Adds 2-4 supplemental low-level scans to each volume scan
  • Changes to CMD reducing residual clutter
    • Improvements to dual pol products
  • Sites gaining supplemental below 0.5-degree elevation angles
  • Software security updates

The operator training for RDA/RPG Build 18.2 deployment consists of an on-line Articulate module.
