Airport gets advanced radar system

Aurangabad: A monopulse secondary surveillance radar (MSSR) has been installed at the Aurangabad airport to ensure effective air traffic management. Airport director D G Salve said on Thursday the advanced system would facilitate smooth controlling of inbound and overflying air traffic.

“In the event of several aircraft coming into proximity or flying in the same direction, their transponder replies can overlap. In another set of conditions, air traffic may give a false indication of an aircraft which does not exist. All these possible technical issues will be addressed using the MSSR,” he said.

Salve said the commissioning of MSSR in a full-fledged manner is expected to take place over the next few months. Afterwards, radio detection and ranging (Radar) data from Aurangabad airport will be transferred to Communications, Navigation and Surveillance Systems for air traffic management in other cities.
