Scanter 5202 is operating in X-Band short range primary surveillance radar, designed for a use in wind parks. It is a version of the Scanter 5000 radar family that has been reduced in range and radar signal processing.
The Scanter 5202 radar system will monitor the airspace around the wind farm and only activate the obstruction lights when aircraft are within a specified range of the wind farm. For instance, when there are no aircraft in the vicinity of the wind turbine farm or obstruction, the warning lights remain off. When aircraft are detected in the vicinity, the lights are activated (turned on). When all aircraft have safely left the vicinity, the lights are deactivated (turned off). The Scanter 5202 allows wind turbine farm warning lights to remain safely off at night when aircraft are not in the area.
