Danish navigation services provider NAVIAIR will begin installation of Germany-based COMSOFT’s Quadrant system.
The move is part of NAVIAIR’s attempt to offer better air traffic surveillance in Denmark with a wide area multilateration (WAM) station.
ATC provider COMSOFT’s ultra-compact remote sensors are linked to a Quadrant central processor, which is said to offer better WAM and ADS-B surveillance capabilities.
The new systems will offer multilateration coverage for Denmark’s 61,000km² airspace, as well as an unrivalled ADS-B range extending beyond 300nm.
With the the first stages of installation complete, the company will launch WAM stations across 25 sites across Denmark, including Ålborg, Århus, Billund, Copenhagen and Roskilde airports.
The new surveillance network will make it possible to carry out complex air traffic management, including areas currently lacking comprehensive coverage after completion.

NAVIAIR ATM projects and engineering project manager Henrik Tvilling Jensen said: "COMSOFT has completed comprehensive factory testing and we see a smooth start to the second stage, as our respective teams work together towards a shared goal of increased surveillance of Danish airspace."
According to COMSOFT, Quadrant uses multilateration to provide independent and genuine 3D position measurements.
The company also claims that the positions of sensors, as well as the timing of collected information, will allow accurate positions to be determined for wide and local area systems.
