The base unit provides a fully operational close range radar. The abbreviation PSR stands for primary surveillance radar and emphasizes the conceptual proximity of the PSR and large size radar towers in air traffic surveillance. FreeScopes and Target Tracker are included.
The FMCW base module of the SkyRadar Modular Radar Training System provides a fully operational close and near range radar. The abbreviation FMCW stands for Frequency-modulated continuous-wave radar. FreeScopes and Target Tracker are included. The FMCW-modules exists in the versions: - Standard, with a range of 24 m (persons) / 50 m (cars). - Extended, with a range of 56 m (persons) / 150 m (cars) - Extreme, with a range of 120 m (persons) / 450 m (cars) - Superhet, with a range of 200 m (persons) / 1000 m (cars)
The Cloud Server allows to connect many SkyRadar Radar or Simulator units to more than 100 concurrent users. Students can access various resources simultaneously. In small configurations (e.g., one PSR base module, accessed by 3 concurrent students only) the cloud server is not required.
The SAR Module is an extension of the FMCW base. A step-motor-controlled linear axis allows movement of the transceiver. SAR aggregates the data producing resolutions which go far beyond results of a normal antenna.
For indoor and outside experiments the chain-driven remote controlled moveable device is able to move freely in the laboratory without any of the limitations of a target table or a rail system. It is part of SkyRadar’s Radar Training System.
This ADS-B live module tracks real ADS-B squitter signals in the sky, and with the help of a sophisticated simulation, it augments the received set of data and complements it with Mode A, C and S interrogation signals.
The simulator includes the simulators on Pulse, CW, FMCW, SAR, eSAR, SSR, ADS-B, TCAS and more. A comfortable pseudo-pilot screen allows to set the scene and to place aircraft (with different positions, speed and height) in the sky. An unlimited amount of concurrent Controller Work Positions (CWP) can analyze primary and secondary radar images through scopes like A-Scopes, B-Scopes or PPI-scopes.
The Phased Array Beam Controller of SkyRadar consists of an array of four individual antennas, each of which is equipped with a phase shifter, controllable through an adjustable control voltage. ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical band) is the frequency band. The transmitter of this Beam controller operates in the range 2400-2500 MHz.
