Description: ASR-S is a fully solid-state air traffic control radar developed by EADS as the replacement for more than 20 military air traffic control radars deployed within German Armed Forces airbases. ASR-S primary mission is to control military air traffic even in adverse weather conditions and high traffic density. For enhanced safety all the critical sub-systems are redundant. The signal processing and tracking of airborne targets supports typical military operations such as formation flights, fighter's high-g maneuvers and hovering helicopters. ASR-S features a comprehensive built-in auto test system to rapidly determine failure location.
ASR-S allows to detect light aircraft and hovering helicopters with low false target rate. It also incorporates the MSSR 2000I Mode S secondary radar for automatic identification. Cost reduction and scalability goals were accomplished by utilizing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and a modular architecture. EADS announced that the ASR-S radar had passed field testing in May 2006.
