Star NG

Star NG (Next Generation) is an S band for Approach Control. This ATC-Radar is the evolution of the highly successful STAR 2000. Star NG is designed to support both civil and military requirements in today’s complex operation environment. Wind turbines, 4G mobile communications, UAVs, radar and airspace management needs to co-exist and the next generation of non-cooperative radar will have to be designed with innovative features such as a complete mitigation of wind farm effects, resistance against interference by 4G/LTE mobile phone signals and conformity of military ATC requirements. It also possesses anti-jamming functions, and has the ability to provide altimetry and weather information.
