Hensoldt and Raytheon announced at the World ATM Congress in Madrid on 6 March that they will cooperate in development and marketing of new air traffic control radars. Specifically they will be addressing opportunities in airport approach control, air traffic control and air space surveillance and aircraft identification using Mode S and Mode 5.
The two companies intend to provide commercial airports a fully integrated air surveillance radar to enhance air traffic safety and efficiency. Their cooperation will create the optimum solution for their customers by combining Hensoldt’s primary radar airport surveillance radar and its monopulse secondary surveillance radar with Raytheon’s Mode S monopulse secondary surveillance radar. This new offering converges the companies’ ATC and sensor portfolios to grow their market presence worldwide and deliver new capabilities to benefit their customers.
“Our companies have decades of experience developing air traffic control systems. The system we’re developing brings together our market-leading products to create an advanced, proven airport surveillance radar,” commented Vice President of Transportation and Support Services at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services, Bob Delorge.
“Working with Raytheon, we will jointly improve flight safety for our citizens. Our complementary products will enable us to better serve our customers’ needs,” added Hensoldt’s Head of Radar/IFF/Data Link and Executive Board Member, Erwin Paulus.
