Omnisys to support Brazilian airspace surveillance
Thales’ Brazilian subsidiary Omnisys has been selected to install LP23SST-NG long-range primary radar and RMS970S secondary route surveillance radar in the cities of Ponta Porã, Corumbá and Porto Murtinho in Brazil.
The contract, awarded by the Commission for the Implementation of the Airspace Control System (CISCEA), will see the deployment of the radars in the mid-west border area to help the Brazilian Air Force intercept drug trafficking and other forms of smuggling.
The LP23SST-NG radar is capable of detecting all types of cooperative and non-cooperative aircraft. It features a built-in altimetry function that allows accurate three-dimensional identification of targets and electronic countermeasures that protect the radars from intentional and non-intentional electromagnetic interference. It also detects aircraft flying at low or zero speeds, such as helicopters, and high-speed and high-manoeuvrability capabilities, like fighter jets.
The RMS970S radar provides an optimal response to operational requirements, including a high contribution to air traffic safety by ensuring total integrity and availability of surveillance and communication data.
The data from the radars will be processed and analysed by the Brazilian Airspace Control System.
Omnisys will also provide the necessary technical support including preventive and corrective maintenance, field technical support and maintenance and operator training.
