Unified Comprehensive Surveillance
Developed by NRPL, Unified Comprehensive Surveillance is a concept consisting of seamlessly combining various sensors while having unified data processing, control and monitoring, and PPI. This approach allows for the end user to reduce investments into the ATC surveillance network which typically consists of separate sensors with their own separate and often non-interoperable RDPS, CMS and PPI systems.
PSR Morava 10 is a field-proven S-band Primary Surveillance Radar with extended detection range reaching 120 NM. The radar is a combination of various hi-end design approaches and advanced manufacturing practices. Our customers perceive PSR Morava 10 as a state-of-the-art, reliable and high performance ATC sensor. Advanced field-proven proprietary signal processing algorithms guarantee low false alarm level, reliable detection, and wind farm clutter mitigation.
Mode-S MSSR M10S is a compact and flexible Mode-S Monopulse Secondary Surveillance Radar which is installed at numerous locations worldwide. M10S is a high performance turnkey solution with open architecture easily adaptable to customer requirements and needs of different sites such as communication and maintenance facilities.
ADS-B/MLAT is a compact indoor or outdoor system with a number of different antenna options available. It can be used either separately or as a part of the Unified Comprehensive Surveillance where traditional surveillance technologies are complemented with ADS-B/MLAT systems. ADS-B/MLAT integration into PSR or MSSR radar does not require separate data processing system or CMS, the approach which has been field-proven at numerous sites.
Transportable PSR/MSSR/ADS-B is an easily deployable air traffic control surveillance system that provides a terminal approach and en route surveillance. It is mainly used as an emergency gap filler or in case when communication and power supply infrastructures are temporarily not available.
NRPL holds an ISO 9001:2008 certificate issued by DNV for design, development, production, sales and aftersales of air traffic control radar systems. All NRPL subcontractors and suppliers have ISO certified quality management systems.
NRPL has wide experience in delivering turn-key surveillance solutions to our customers in United Kingdom, Lithuania, South Korea, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Mozambique, Russia, Armenia, and Cuba. NRPL has numerous PSR, MSSR, ADS-B, and RDPS installations world-wide.
NRPL specializes in radar systems design, signal and data processing, RF devices, control and monitoring, customized software solutions, antenna systems, and hardware.
