The SkyRadar team completely reworked its PSR radar. With the best resolution in the market, unlimited concurrent users, a plug-an-play approach and much more it is heading to set standards for affordable qualification tools in ATC and University Education.
So what is new?
A lot, so let us look at it in a structured way. We do not dive into all details, but highlight the important parts.
We brought the radial resolution to 3.75 cm at distances up to 10 m. This is 4 times better than competition (given that their range does not even get to 10 m).
Look at the picture below, and the incredible details. We catch humans, objects, and of course moving objects like remote controlled drones.
Plug and Play
With the new rotary tripod, the solution is even easier to assemble and takes only minutes to set up. The tripod now works with a stepper motor. It does not rely on a compass anymore, which may easily be disturbed by magnetic fields in your laboratory.
The CloudServer now has router function. So there is no complicated communication with the IT departments when setting up a bigger network. You can simply plug a wifi card into the server and operate the whole network wireless.
Completely new FreeScopes Software
FreeScopes for PSR - the software that visualizes the scopes and controls has been completely reworked. You may want to look at the dedicated article on the new FreeScopes. Flexibel panels for scope and filter applications per scope boost FreeScopes light-years ahead of any other tool in the market.
The new Rotary Tripod and the new CloudServer give the system an enhanced robustness and the possibility to operate 24/7.
That makes sense when students shall get access to the radar remotely outside the laboratory time slots, to do the aftermath, or personal research. Also it allows ATCOs and ATSEPs to do remote training sessions On-the-Job (OTJ). for instance in the frame of ICAO Doc 10057 training for ATSEPs.
Existing Features that are worth mentioning
On top of this we should not forget existing advantages of the system:
- Unlimited concurrent users get access, which makes the system ideal for university training and large-scale but high quality ATCO and ATSEP qualification.
- Modern radar technology and Web-tech-based Scopes attract Millennials and innovative minds much more than the traditional and outmoded transistor-transistor logic (TTL) which is still offered in the market.
- Highly Economical Solution - yes we do not travel the world too much but put the money into our products. You can talk to us all the time, just by clicking on the chat window on the bottom right corner of your screen. So let us put our funds there where you benefit the most: in great technology and economical pricing (we are still around 1/3 of competitors' pricing). And as we are the only ones who allow for unlimited concurrent users, costs go down even further.
