Radar technology has been with us for over seventy years, yet many of the fundamental elements of radar design have changed little over that time. The vast majority of radars are based on mechanical scanning – a rotating antenna which sends out a pulse of radio waves, receives the echo and so can calculate the range and direction of a target. This gives the classic “blip” on a radar screen every few seconds.
Aveillant’s Holographic Radar™ system differs fundamentally from both traditional mechanically scanned radars and from more advanced electronically scanned systems. Holographic Radar™ floodlights a volume of interest on transmit, and forms multiple simultaneous receive beams that fill the illuminated volume.
Specialist CNS/ATM consultants with ISO 9001:2015 accreditation. Proven track record of providing innovative solutions to otherwise intractable Operational and Engineering problems.
A solution developed by Cyrrus is the Aerium which can take in multiple data streams, integrate them and output seamless data to displays in a selected format. The Aerium is to be used as the data integrator for the Theia in Phase 2 of Project Green Blade.
