Saab Sensis Corp. and Aveillant say they will provide a technical demonstration of a system designed to solve the problem of wind turbine interference with radar systems, including air traffic.

The companies say the program will demonstrate that clutter-free ATC surveillance data from non-cooperating targets can be produced using Aveillant's 3D Holographic Radar, along with existing primary surveillance radar (PSR).

Saab Sensis' fusion technology combines primary plot extracted data from the local airport PSR with either the co-mounted secondary surveillance radar (SSR) (when operating in combiner mode) or with a remote asynchronous SSR site (when operating in assignor mode).

Saab Sensis' fusion technology is intended to generate a combined output in the common ASTERIX ATM format from Aveillant's 3D Holographic Radar and data provided by NATS from Glasgow International Airport's PSR.

A secondary demonstration will incorporate Saab Sensis wide area multilateration (WAM) data with the PSR and holographic radar data to illustrate the ability to use both cooperative and non-cooperative surveillance sources. WAM uses a distributed system of non-rotating sensors that triangulate an aircraft's position based on transponder signals, either passively or through interrogation, providing once-per-second update rate, the company explains.
