Terminal Airfield Surveillance Radar TASR

TASR is an all-weather air traffic control airport surveillance radar. It is a modular system that can be configured to meet any operational requirement. Configurations include a trailer-mounted mobile system for tactical operations or a fixed-based system. The system has a dual redundant transceiver and is also adaptable to preferred secondary surveillance radars.

TASR radiates at lower S-Band (2.7 to 2.9 GHz sub-band) with a digital solid-state transmitter at the heart of the system. The all solid-state radar also includes a dual beam antenna and high-resolution digital colour workstation displays.

The TASR is suitable for both commercial or military air traffic applications. Based on a proven modular design, the TASR provides simplified operations with improved reliability and availability. The solid-state system is claimed to provide significant benefits over existing tube-type radar technology.
