The PAR NG is the Precision Approach Radar of New Generation, that provides important support for the approach and landing control of various aircraft, including the emergency landing due to avionics failure. The radar utilizes an active electronic scanning antennas (AESA) both in the azimuth and the elevation which allows operation without mechanical movement of the antennas. The radar meets relevant ICAO standards and follows the NATO Vision document, according to which the PAR technology will be used at least until 2040.
The PAR NG is designed for target detection such as aircrafts, ground objects and meteorological formations. The detected information is displayed on workplace screens and radar information is transferred to remote ATC workplaces. The radar is particularly important in situations when the pilot has limited sight (because of fog, rain, etc.) and in emergency landing due to avionics failure. In this situation, the radar has to provide the approach controller with maximum quality radar display complemented by computer evaluation of speed, deviations from glide path/course line, the distance from the previously approaching aircraft, etc.
The construction of the PAR NG is fully modular and uses a fully backed-up radar solution including the system of communication with a remote site. The radar works as a full stand-alone unit. The azimuthal and altitude antenna contains 16 transmitter / receiver modules that control 256 antenna elements. The antennas offer an operating mode in linear or circular polarization. System reliability and operating parameters are guaranteed even in the event of a single module failure.
The PAR NG system involves the BITE diagnostics to enable fast and accurate identification of a faulty block of the radar system.
The mobile version PAR-E mobile meets the ISO 1C container standard with international CSC certification. This solution offers a wide range of transport options - road, sea, rail and air.
