    Over the past decade or so there has been increasing interest and recognition of the ground movement environment as part of the overall air traffic control problem. There are a number of reasons for this, both on safety and airport efficiency grounds. One recognition of this was the adoption by Eurocontrol of a gate to gate air traffic control concept. There is also considerable activity by organi... View full abstract»

  • The civil aviation radar (surveillance) architecture

    Surveillance applications are broadly divided into "broadcast" or "addressed" services. Each service requires its own logical network to make optimal use of bandwidth. Three main data management processes, datalink server, surveillance processing and track processing, utilise the data obtained from sensors and re-circulate the information, to augment the raw data. End applications receive the data... View full abstract»

    The introduction of Mode S is intended to provide civil air traffic control (ATC) with the radar capacity to cope with the growing demands on the surveillance ground network into the foreseeable future. This paper looks at the drivers for Mode S, and the programme for its introduction. The paper then goes on to look at the issues of introducing Mode S from a ground and airborne perspective - both ... View full abstract»

  • Mode S-the future

    Publication Year: 2002 , Page(s): 2/1 - 2/4

    After about 20 years of research, the Mode S system is becoming a reality. The airlines are installing the airborne equipment and plans are well in hand for the ground facilities. I expect Mode S to make a real contribution to the relief of airspace congestion. It is rather unconventional to start with the conclusions but these words actually concluded a presentation to the IEE by another author. ... View full abstract»

  • Ground-based aviation weather radar research at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and University College London

    Publication Year: 2002 , Page(s): 6/1 - 6/9

    We present an overview of recent collaborative research, involving RAL and UCL, in the field of ground-based meteorological radar systems for weather assessment at, and in the terminal manoeuvring area (TMA) surrounding, civil airports. Three projects are briefly described. Firstly, we present the results from a design study intended to develop the specifications for a dedicated C-band weather sur... View full abstract»

  • Aviation radar systems (Jan 2002): the practical allocation of II codes

    Publication Year: 2002 , Page(s): 4/1 - 4/9

    Within Europe, air traffic service providers are currently implementing plans to upgrade SSR (secondary surveillance radar) radar systems to Mode S radar systems. Even in the short term, the demand for interrogator identifier (II) codes by air traffic service providers has already exceeded the number of II codes available. In this presentation, we describe why II codes are needed for Mode S system... View full abstract»

  • Radar imaging with ALG - the on-board low visibility landing aid

    Publication Year: 2002 , Page(s): 10/1 - 10/4
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    MBDA, in conjunction with BAE SYSTEMS Controls, California, are responsible for the design and development of a prototype real time imaging radar system known as ALG, autonomous landing guidance. The radar system generates frequent images that are presented to a pilot on a HUD to enable landing without the use of other landing aids in low visibility conditions. A prototype ALG system has been oper... View full abstract»

  • The application of head up displays to reduce both controlled flight into terrain and approach and landing accidents through enhanced situational awareness

    Publication Year: 2002 , Page(s): 9/1 - 9/5

    The increase in air transport traffic in recent years coupled with the projected further increases in the next decade has been generally recognised as having highlighted the need to achieve continually increasing levels of safety for air transport operations. This paper describes an enhanced visual guidance system (EVGS) which assists the safe operation of the aircraft by increasing the pilot's si... View full abstract»
