MADRID, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Saab today introduced the SR-3, its third generation, entirely solid state X-band Surface Movement Radar (SMR) for airport surface surveillance applications. The SR-3 features the antenna, transceiver and radar data processor in a complete package from the global leader in Advanced-Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems (A-SMGCS).
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 complies fully 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 in all visibility conditions due to 16-level frequency diversity, automatic clutter suppression through 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 cost.
"The SR-3 is a proven solution for airports that need to replace existing SMRs, augment coverage due to growth or are fielding an SMR for the first time," said Ken Kaminski, general manager of Saab ATM. "Saab's extensive experience delivering solid state SMRs, along with airport surface surveillance systems, means customers will receive a low-risk solution from a single supplier who understands airport surface safety."
