Terminal Area Radar Complex “RC-10RA”


Terminal Area Radar Complex “RC-10RA” is intended for regional airports has primary surveillance channel of S-band and secondary surveillance channel of RBS mode does ensure the following:
  • Aircraft detection and measurement of coordinates via primary channel;
  • Detection and coordinates measurement of aircraft equipped with transponders operating in RBS modes within the coverage area of TARC;
  • Receiving and processing of supplementary data from aircraft equipped with transponders operating in RBS-modes;
  • Mathing of coordinate and supplementary data of primary and secondary channels;
  • Radar data output to ATC systems regarding aircraft position (inclined range and azimuth) detected via primary channel;
  • Secondary radar data output to ATC systems regarding aircraft location in RBS mode, namely: inclined range, azimuth, barometric altitude, aircraft number (identification code), special signals of identification (SPI), alarm signals.

TARC comprises the following:

  • Antenna device including antennas of primary and secondary channels;

  • Transmitting-receiving equipment of primary and secondary channels;

  • Radar data processing equipment;

  • Monitoring and control equipment including the remote mode;

  • Means for interfacing with data transmission channels;

  • UPS-source;

  • Life-support system;

  • Security and fire alarm system;

  • Remote terminal with the functions of TARC control and monitoring as well as functions of displaying air situation within TARC coverage zone;

  • Transponder;

  • SPTA set;

  • Set of operational documentation;

  • “TOPAZ” Air Traffic Control Automation Facilities Complex.
