Scopes for Secondary Surveillance Radars

PSR & SSR Simulator

The PSR & SSR Simulator is a sophisticated simulation software which is delivered on a rack server. Learners can access the simulations through any recent generation HTML5-enabled browsers on any operating system.  Computers get access the LAN or Wireless LAN, enabled through the SkyRadar Cloud Server.

It allows for 

  • plug-and-play availability in all SkyRadar CloudServer based infrastructures
  • no installation or maintenance of the software on the student computers (apart from exceptional cases, e.g. in the context of ILS, when voice communication is required)
  • 100s of concurrent users, working simultaneously on the same applications and radars (enabled through a private cloud server, located at the customer site).
  • drastically reduces system costs per user and makes SkyRadar the most economical training system (using real radars!) in the world
  • allows for easy and effortless expansion of the system (e.g., when adding additional primary or secondary radars)
  • accelerates the learning curve of students, as they are accustomed to the comfortable SkyRadar learning environment



Primary Surveillance Radars

The simulator operates the following primary surveillance modes:

  • Pulse
  • Constant Wave (CW) / Doppler
  • Frequency Modulated Constant Wave (FMCW)
  • Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
  • inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (iSAR)

Receiver with STC, Amplification and Threshold Controls


Secondary Surveillance Radars

FreeScopes also serves as GUI for secondary surveillance radar. It provides the following user interfaces:

  • PPI Scope with information of key aircraft data as 3rd dimension (Visualization of DF17 Squitter Signal)
  • Visualization of interrogation and downlinks as pulse diagrams as well as in a table

Using FreeScopes as a standardized user interface for Pulse, Doppler, CW, FMCW and SAR / iSAR simulators, it provides all important scopes and control elements for the application. 

  • Scopes: A-Scopes, B-Scopes, Plan-Position-Indicator for PSR,  Synthetic Aperture Radar Screen (SAR), inverse SAR (iSAR)
  • PPIs: SSR Mode A/C and Mode S, ADS-B
  • Pulse Diagrams and table Sidelobe Surpression, uplink format (UF), downlink format (DF), DBS registers
  • Pseudo-Pilot Screens
  • Control Elements: Amplifiers and controls for synchronizer, receiver, signal processor (filters and amplifiers), motor control, as well as controls for the scopes (amplification, color setting, etc)
