Hensoldt launches new ATC radar
Hensoldt has launched a new air traffic control (ATC) radar called the ASR-NG Deployable, the company announced on 5 March.
The rapidly deployable ATC radar complies with all International Civil Aviation Organization, Eurocontrol and safety standards for civil and military ATC.
The ASR radar family consist of integrated primary and secondary radar systems. The primary radar is based on a semiconductor transmitter and helps to detect non-cooperative objects such as small aircraft that do not have transponders, or hostile aircraft. The radar includes special signal processing techniques for wide-area surveillance and windfarm mitigation.
The secondary radar, MSSR 2000 I, ensures the automatic identification of cooperative aircraft. It meets the new Mode S/Mode 5 ATC standard, which improves aircraft identification queries and is currently being introduced by all NATO and allied forces.
The system is air transportabile in one aircraft and has a deployment time of less than six hours.
Thomas Müller, CEO, Hensoldt, said: ‘The versatility of our new product combined with ASR-NG’s superior performance makes it ideally suited for ATC purposes in joint and combined missions of expeditionary units. Thus, it allows for maximum efficiency of combined air, ground and naval forces while contributing to safe operations and avoidance of friendly fire.’
The newly launched radar will be delivered to the first customer in course of the year.
