ASR

Airport Surveillance Radar

NEC's Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR) is a high performance S-Band radar system designed to provide air traffic controllers with reliable and clear picture of air traffic within its coverage area.

Latest solid-state and digital processing technologies are used to realize improved ground and weather clutter suppression and interference-free output.
Based on its more than 50 years of unique experiences of serving worldwide customers, NEC offers integrated advanced technologies listed below to meet each customer's requirements.

  • Benefiting in fully solid-state transmitter and signal processing technologies with system stability
  • Clutter rejection by use of dual beam antenna and multi-doppler filter technologies
  • A high level of data availability by sliding-window technique to provide aircraft and weather data simultaneously
  • Digital pulse compression technique
  • Redundant architecture based on a fault tolerant transmitter and duplicated receivers and processing channels with automatic switchover
  • Easy and safe maintenance
