The family of transportable surveillance systems is a further development of the NRPL Unified Comprehensive Surveillance, the concept which is intended to provide the most flexible and cost-effective surveillance solutions for the ATC market. Transportable surveillance systems are mainly dedicated for the following use cases:
A gap filler for the case of conventional surveillance unavailability due to emergency or an incident such as earthquake, flood, storm, fire, military hostile actions, etc.
A temporary back-up solution for conventional surveillance systems in case of temporary need to increase reliability and redundancy of radar coverage. This kind of situation can occur when a major international event is held or when adjacent airfield or airspace is temporary closed leading to air traffic intensity increase
A temporary solution for new airfields when new infra- structure is not yet available
Reduction of infrastructure building and planning costs
When land purchase for permanent radar site construction is not economically viable
A temporary surveillance solution for non-permanent airfields, e.g. airports used during high seasons only or military bases
This class of systems can be easily transported by road, sea or air and rapidly deployed at any location. The system does not require permanent power supply or communication lines and can even include air traffic controller working position equipment to serve as an air traffic control center.
