Saab subsidiary Sensis has secured a contract from NATS to install its wide area multilateration (Wam ) system for the location and identification of flights in the vicinity of Edinburgh Airport in Scotland, UK.

Under the contract, Saab Sensis will replace the Monopulse Secondary Surveillance Radar with the Wam system to enhance safety, efficiency, capacity and cost savings.

The Wam system will provide NATS’ air traffic controllers at Edinburgh with approach control surveillance of commercial, general aviation and helicopters operating within 60 nautical miles of the airport.

Saab said that its Sensis multilateration system uses multiple low-maintenance, non-rotating sensors to triangulate aircraft locations based on transponder signals to provide air traffic controllers with precise aircraft position and identification information regardless of weather conditions.
