Sensor solutions provider Hensoldt has secured a contract from air navigation services provider Austro Control to deliver two high-performance radar systems for modernising air traffic control systems in Austria.

The new radar systems guarantee reliable detection offered by the new air traffic control standard ‘Mode S’, and also safe management of air traffic even in the ‘radar shadow’ of wind farms.

Hensoldt CEO Thomas Müller said: “Austro Control’s order confirms our market position as one of the leading suppliers of air traffic control equipment in Europe.

“Our radar systems provide top performances in the fields of military and civilian air traffic control and air surveillance and ensure that people can travel with the greatest amount of safety possible.”

Under the terms of the contract, Hensoldt will deliver an ASR-NG combined primary/secondary radar and a standalone MSSR 2000 I secondary radar to Austro Control.

“Our radar systems ensure that people can travel with the greatest amount of safety possible.”

These radars will be deployed at Vienna International Airport and in the air traffic control system at the top of Feichtberg Hill in Upper Austria.

Objects such as small aircraft that do not identify themselves with the help of their own transponder signals can be detected using the primary radar.

This radar is integrated with a special signal processing technology to carry out wide-area air surveillance. It is also capable of detecting objects at an altitude of up to 50,000ft.

With the help of the MSSR 2000 I secondary radar, which meets the new ‘Mode S’ and ‘ADS-B’ standards, aircraft emitting their own transponder signals can be automatically identified.

Hensoldt has already delivered secondary radar systems for the air traffic control systems at Vienna International Airport.
