Russia’s Ruselectronics Holding, subsidiary of state-owned Rostec, has developed Miass mobile air traffic control (ATC) radars to improve safety of air traffic at small airports.
Tests of the radar will begin in the second quarter of 2021, Rostec announced today.
The project is being implemented by the Polet Chelyabinsk radio plant of the Vega concern of the Ruselectronics holding jointly with the Industrial Development Fund, which has allocated a 320 million rubles ($4.31 million) loan under the Conversion program.
A key feature of the new radar system is the mode of targeted information exchange with a specific aircraft, which facilitates air traffic control and reduces the likelihood of data transmission errors.
Miass is capable of round-the-clock and without the presence of attendants to transmit information about the coordinates of aircraft to the dispatcher via the primary channel within a radius of at least 100 km and via the secondary channel within a radius of at least 300 km.
Another important advantage of the complex is its small size and reduced weight, which simplifies the process of its transportation, requires small volumes of design, survey and construction and installation work at the installation site.
