ATSEP training and university-based radar education face similar challenges: the need to manipulate relevant parameters of the radar equation (power, pulse-width, filters, amplifiers, MTI, etc) and to have access all along the radar signal conversion chain. SkyRadar's pulse radar solution is the only available system in the market, able to respond on the ATSEP training requirements by ICAO.
The pulse module operates with an S-Band Tx/Rx radar and a computer-based control-center to visualize A-Scope and B-Scopes as well as to manipulate parameters (power, pulse-width), filters, amplification and to look at aspects like clutter or Doppler. The basic setting consists of an S-band antenna (placed or pointing outside through a window), a Transmitter /Receiver unit and PC for control and analysis. The transmitter can send very short pulses through the antenna into the environment and the receiver will monitor static (buildings, trees...) and moving objects (cars, person...) which pass the antenna beam. Alike aircraft in the sky or on the runway, the moving cars or people allow to study I/Q data, MTI and Doppler effects. The signals are digitized, processed and recorded using a DSP, data is visualised in the control center. The basic module can be extended by a monopulse unit, a field analyzer, a test interrogator and more.
The Pulse Radar can be analyzed by one PC / Control Center concurrently.
The control center software is available for the following subjects:
The Pulse Radar Module consists of:
As the Pulse Radar module is modular and open by design, it can extended by countless systems. Please discuss your requirements with us.
The broad coverage of solutions useful in ICAO and EuroControl ATCO and ATSEP training programs as well as IATA qualifications makes SkyRadar the preferred choice of many aviation academies and IATA TrainAir Plus accredited institutions. Also, many universities use the PSR Base Module within their qualification, education, training or research programs.
