Cassidian wins Canadian airbase radar contract

25th March 2013 - 15:37 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cassidian has announced that it will supply the Royal Canadian Airforce with next-generation (NG) airport surveillance radars (ASRs) under a €50 million programme. The contract, announced on 22 March, will see the company deliver seven of its ASR NG airport surveillance radars.

The ASR NG radars will improve flight safety on Canadian airbases and enhance the integration of military aviation into civil air traffic. Due to its specific data processing software the ASR is able to track air traffic even in windfarm shadows. As a special feature, the ASR NG comprises the secondary radar MSSR 2000 I allowing for reliable individual identification of more than one thousand aircraft at a time.

Simon Jacques, head of Cassidian Canada, said: ‘The radar provides outstanding performance for wide-area surveillance around airbases as well as safe guidance of individual aircraft during take-off and landing. Our ASR NG guarantees outstanding performance so that even very small objects such as ultra-lightweight aircraft or even flocks of birds can be reliably detected and classified.’

Cassidian will work together with Lockheed Martin Canada as a local partner in this project.
