DeTect, Inc., a radar engineering company, has announced that its HARRIER S200d Air Surveillance Radar (ASR) has been installed at the Air Traffic Laboratory for Advanced Systems (ATLAS) in Villacarillo, Spain, to provide detection and tracking of aircraft, drones and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). ATLAS is Europe’s first purpose-built drone and UAS test flight and development range.
DeTect’s HARRIER ASR incorporates the latest in solid-state, Doppler radar technology and web-based data displays to accommodate a diversity of user applications, simultaneously, in real-time.
“By incorporating multiple sensors including radar, TCAS and ADSB receivers into the HARRIER system, DeTect is able to provide the most secure and seamless real-time surveillance system in the world for detection and tracking of small Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS),” said Edward Zakrajsek, General Manager of DeTect Global, Ltd, London.
Zakrajsek added: “The HARRIER security and surveillance radar provides full surveillance coverage from ground level to altitudes up to 6000 meters with ranges out to 48+ kilometers and allows the system to function as a multi-purpose sensor for simultaneous detection, alerting and tracking of aircraft and drones.”
