Market Overview

Global Airport Surveillance Radar (Simple Pulse, Moving-Target Indication, Airborne Surveillance & 3-D Radar) Market 2018-2023 -


The "Airport
Surveillance Radar Market - Forecasts from 2018 to 2023"
has been added to's offering.

The global airport surveillance radar market is projected to grow at a
CAGR of 5.50% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023.

An airport surveillance radar system is a system which is used at
airports to identify and exhibit the position of an airplane in
aerospace around airports. It is used to monitor air traffic around the
airport. This system controls traffic inside a radius of 30 to 50
nautical miles (56 to 93 km) of the air terminal and can detect and
track aircraft at altitudes less than 25,000 feet.

The system of surveillance radar system contains two systems; the
primary and secondary surveillance radar. The primary system is capable
of detecting the aircraft position by microwaves reflected back to the
reception equipment from the aircraft's surface whereas the secondary
surveillance system questions the transponders of aircraft and transmit
a signal back containing the airplane's ID and elevation which is shown
on the radar screen.

The screen also displays positions of aircraft and at large airports,
multiple screens in an operation room are deployed in order to monitor
air traffic by establishing a communication with aircraft pilots by
radio. These systems are also essential to alert the aircraft and direct
it safely around from undesired clutter such as rain, severe weather or
hazardous conditions.

Market Outlook

The data of airport surveillance radar systems can be shown in systems
such as Common Automated Radar Terminal System (CARTS), Standard
Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS) and Automated Radar
Terminal System (ARTS). It is essential to make planes land safely, but
it is equally important to make their journey safe. GCA scanning pencil
beams were replaced by ILS, in a similar fashion, enhanced radars which
have faster scan rates and large coverage areas replaced GCA
surveillance radars. The global market for airport surveillance radar
systems is being driven chiefly by the rapid increase in air traffic.

As the companies are expanding their operations in other countries and
producing goods and services for the global market, there has been a
surge in the air traffic over the past decade. Moreover, the growing
need for security is also driving the demand for airport surveillance
radar systems. This system can notify if any trespasser tries to get an
access and can alert the officials to take some action.
