Saab To Deploy SR-3 Surface Movement Radar In Prague
Defence and security company Saab announces that it has been selected by Air Navigation Services of the Czech Republic (ANS CR) to deliver its SR-3 Surface Movement Radar (SMR) for Václav Havel Airport, Prague.
The SR-3 radar delivers critical situational awareness and safety in all weather conditions. It will be used for the detection of non-cooperative targets -- including aircraft, ground vehicles, and other obstacles -- and integrated into the existing Advanced Surface Movement Guidance & Control Systems (A‑SMGCS) system. Based on more than 10 years’ experience in fielding solid state radars, the SR-3 employs an open architecture design that utilizes industry standard interfaces for easy integration into existing or new air traffic control systems. The radar fully complies with EUROCAE ED-116 and EUROCAE ED-87B standards for A‑SMGCS Levels 1, 2 and 3.
The SR-3 radar delivers the highest level of surveillance available due to its 16-level frequency diversity, automatic clutter suppression using advanced signal processing, and sophisticated processing that eliminates multi-path targets. The fully redundant design and small number of line replaceable units delivers high reliability, easy maintenance and low life cycle costs. In addition, the small indoor/outdoor transceiver cabinet means greater site flexibility and lower installation costs.
“Saab’s SR-3 is a low-risk solution for airports like Prague that need to replace an aging radar, or for airports looking to augment coverage or deploy a Surface Movement Radar for the first time. The SR-3 was specifically designed to support air traffic safety systems such as A-SMGCS,” says Anders Carp, head of Saab business unit Traffic Management.
