I was involved in this programme. The commentary regarding Continental
and windshear radar was certainly accurate at the time it was written.
The information came from Charles Huettner, NASA's director for aviation
research.  As I understood him at the time, he was saying that Continental
had hoped to skip the earlier generation of compulsory windshear radar by
installing the later, and better system. The newer system is not
compulsory, I understand, but NASA would like it to become so because its
predecessor has no predictive capability.
