Contrary to main radar systems, which determine the bearing and distance of targets using the radio waves’ detected reflections, secondary surveillance radar is a radar system used in air traffic management.
Position, altitude, speed, weather reports, ground speed, and TCAS—a technology that avoids aircraft collisions while they are in flight—are provided.
Three things about SSR are very advantageous: First off, because the reply signal is transmitted from the aircraft, it is received at the ground station considerably stronger, opening up the prospect of a much wider range and decreasing the issues with signal attenuation. In a similar vein, the transmitting power needed by the ground station is reduced.
The Global Secondary Surveillance Radar market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Thales introduces a new surveillance radar for controlling air traffic Thales, an aerospace company, has introduced the RSM NG, a new digital secondary surveillance radar for use in air traffic management (ATM).
A digital secondary surveillance radar called RSM NG has been introduced by the aerospace company Thales for use in air traffic management (ATM).
The radar can track up to 2,000 planes and send 64 data outputs to several air traffic control centres (ATCC) at once.
The RSM NG has a two-in-one meta-sensor that combines radar (Mode S) and automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) data to allow ‘quicker’ detection and tracking initialization.
According to Thales, the meta-sensor will allow air traffic controllers to maintain a 3nm (5,500m) distance between each aircraft in the airspace over the terminal.
The design weight and volume of the RSM NG radar are 30% smaller than those of previous radars because it has two electronic cabinets rather than three.
The new radar is based on the international National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) architecture, reduces radio frequency pollution, and can be improved in the future.While maintaining the operational behaviour of the radar, RSM NG can function with a single interface to control cybersecurity procedures.
A map of interference is also delivered by the new radar to facilitate integration.Additionally, the Health Usage and Monitoring System (HUMS) capabilities of the radar allow for optimum maintenance.
