SkyRadar's PSR Base Module is one of the leading primary surveillance training radar with unlimited concurrent users. This articles gives a short introduction.
The primary surveillance radar can be used through the ATSEP student's learning path from the initial training , through Unit and Continuation Training up to development training of your examiners, instructors and supervisors.
The system can be easily started up. It can be used in a classroom context to explain the radar principles as well as in self-learning phases. The radar is designed for perfectly save indoors and outside operation (transmitter output power significantly lower as such of a mobile phone).
- Scopes (enabled through FreeScopes)
- Plan-Position-Indicator (PPI)
- Amplification of raw signal (IQ signal) at receiver
- Amplification of filtered signal in the scopes
- Filters and Signal Treatment
- Sensitivity Time Control (STC)
- Signal Threshold and Limiter
- Range Calibration and Extension
- Cutting out selections of the signal range
- Moving Target Detection and Indication
- and more
The radar serves for demonstration purposes in the basic phases and helps e.g., with familiarization and configuration in later stages (e.g. emergency, when there is a system failure), giving hands on experience. The student will get a deep understanding of the calibration of primary radars and of the impact of changes in the radar setting on its visualization in the scopes.
Example 1: measuring a panning fan:
Example 2: playing around with the STC:
