ASC-10 is a Surface Movement Radar (SMR) operating in the X-Band developed from a Frequency-Modulated Continuous-Wave (FMCW) naval navigation radar. The radar provides the tower an air traffic control information about standing and moving aircraft, service vehicles, and people at the airport. It also generates a terrain map and provides data archiving.
The radar uses two slot antennas: a transmitting antenna and a receiving antenna placed one above the other. Both antennas have a width of 3.6 m and a gain of 33 dB. The transmitter-receiver block is located directly at the antenna unit, while the radar operation control and imaging on the color raster monitor are located in the flight control tower. The transmitter’s frequency shift is 108 MHz, and the length of the modulation cycle is 1 ms.
