We've all probably seen the mods to color-code the V1's radar band displays, and change the colors of the arrows. I'd definitely like to see VR add this to the next major upgrade to the V1. However, I think that, with some extra programming and a couple more colored LEDs, they could do one better.
The V1 already knows how to "prioritize" threats...LIDAR is a bigger threat than Ka which is a bigger threat than K which is a bigger threat than X and the higher strength alert is more of a threat than the lower strength alert on the same band. The V1 also knows how to point to the #1 threat, by flashing the arrow pointing in that direction.
But what if it could do one better, and identify the band of the greatest threat in each direction?
Let's say that, on the band display, X-band is red, K-band is yellow/amber, Ka-band is green, and LIDAR is blue.
Then, in a theoretical situation, you have 1 K contact ahead, 1 K contact behind, and 1 LIDAR contact ahead. The Front arrow would flash blue, the Side arrow would be dark, and the Rear arrow would light up yellow/amber.
Second theoretical situation, you have 1 LIDAR contact ahead, 1 K contact to the side, and 1 K contact behind. The side K contact is strong and the rear K contact is weak. The Front arrow would flash blue, the Rear arrow would light up yellow/amber, but maybe in this situation, the Side arrow could ALSO flash (yellow/amber) because the blue color already identifies the frontal LIDAR as the top threat, and the flashing would indicate the side K-band as a greater threat than the rear K-band. Not sure multiple flashing arrows, but it's something to consider.
