MGR / Air Traffic Surveillance Radar

-A +A

This primary surveillance radar (PSR) system is an S-Band solid state  pulse Doppler radar. It has been developed for civil or military air traffic control and rain status determination. The system has been designed in accordance with ICAO and EUROCONTROL standards and guidelines. By using coherent advanced signal processing, aircrafts up to 60 nautical miles under different weather conditions can be detected and tracked. The system can simult aneously track up to 1,000 targets via Moving Target Detection (MTD) and Clutter Reduction capability  by using low/high beam selection, sensitivity time control (STC), adaptive clutter map and Doppler filters. Also, the rain channel can provide 6 levels of rain strength information at 4° to 2 nautical miles resolution and 2D location of rain zones. The system has a clear spectrum output in accordance with the limits defines by NTIA.
