Today we have commissioned a new radar set (primary and secondary radar) near the airport at the Warsaw-based Okęcie. It was built and commissioned in a record time of 11 months, it replaced the worn out ASR-9/MSSR radar, the antenna of which made 147 933 000 rotations during its 23 years of operation.
The new set shall provide data for the purpose of generation of an image of the aeronautical situation in the Pegasus_21 system, which is used by air traffic controllers of the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency.
The commissioning of a new radar means an improvement in the quality of data and radiolocation coverage for the purposes of approach control at the Fryderyk Chopin airport in Warsaw, and the utilization of state of the art technical solutions (mode S) will improve the quality of the entire PANSA radar system.
A similar radar set (primary radar and secondary radar) was built and implemented in Zabierzów near Kraków.
In the following years, it is planned to erect three structures of this type in Poland, and furthermore four secondary radars, and to implement the so-called multilateral system, being an alternative solution to traditional radars.
