Optionally, upgrade and/or refurbishment of airport radar systems can be a part of supply. Finally, a transportable version of airport can be supplied for temporary airports or airfields to be built up.

The mission of Airport Control ATM System is to provide all control capabilities at any airport (compliant/non-compliant with ICAO-CAT 1-3 categories) to the full extent. It is intended primarily for Approach (APP) and Aerodrome (TWR) Control Centres and flight handling units (ARO, TWR) to enable:

  • Planning and control of military air traffic, to ICAO and/or national military procedures
  • Planning and control of civil air traffic, to ICAO and/or national standards (e.g. GOST, FAA)
  • Integration of planning and control of civil/military/air traffic
  • Other related activities or procedures (radar upgrade, control &monitoring of airport equipment, data recording & analysis functionality; data exchange with other ATM centres. Training, etc.)

Some of the general capabilities of the ATM are Radar control within terminal and assigned areas, Radar control for precision approach and landing, Flight planning, departures/arrivals scheduling, procedural control, Local/area meteorological information processing, Data/voice recording and analysis, Digitization of analogue radar data, Plot/track (pre) processing and Multi-radar data receipt or processing.

AIR TRAFFIC SURVEILLANCE

Our OEM Air Traffic solutions for air control and radars are deployed in over tens of airports around the world with great access. There are Primary and Secondary Surveillance Radars, Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B), Multilaterational and Wide Area Multilaterational Systems, as well as Precision Approach Radar (PAR).

Our OEM weather radar systems are based on coaxial magnetron and Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) technology. TDR series radars are fully coherent systems built around either Travelling Wave Tube (TWT) or Klystron transmitter tubes, and DC Switch modulator technology. Mobile radar systems are based on RDR or TDR technology. These systems provide highly portable weather radar capability with data quality comparable to the best permanently installed systems.

All radars are based on a set of compatible hardware modules, these modules can be assembled in a variety of configurations to meet virtually any weather requirement. As a result, AGM can produce a radar system to meet unique requirements, often with minimal additional cost.

 COST EFFECTIVE WIND LIDAR FOR AVIATION

We are using a low cost, Robust, accurate and easy to operate Wind Lidar System, that is based on patented ‘Direct Detection’ technology. This system measures wind speed and wind direction by using an eye safe laser. It is important to use such a system, in order to detect wind shear, which is a sudden change of wind velocity and/or direction, occurring I all directions. This type of wind is dangerous during take-off and landing and it is more frequent in areas with severe thunderstorms. Wind Lidar System is also able to detect a downburst, a localized area of damaging winds, caused by air rapidly flowing down and up from a thunderstorm.

There are also other applications on the Wind Lidar System, such as solution for downburst for remote airfields, solution for dangerous passes, offshore applications, remote airfield/runways and also heliports.
