Surveillance

Surveillance lies at the heart of air traffic management. Optimised surveillance infrastructure allows routes to be brought closer together resulting in an increase of capacity. Frequentis looks back on a long history of experience with the supply of innovative surveillance solutions. The product portfolio includes ADS-B sensors, multilateration systems, surveillance data distribution and processing systems, trackers and surveillance displays. 

The Frequentis Group looks back on a long history of experience with the supply of innovative surveillance solutions. The product portfolio includes ADS-B sensors, multilateration systems, surveillance data distribution and processing systems, and surveillance monitoring displays.


ADS-B, MLAT & WAM

To boost efficiency, cut infrastructure costs and enhance safety, ANSPs are looking at new technologies that can out-perform traditional radar for both air and ground surveillance. Quadrant is a forward-thinking solution for ADS-B and multilateration (MLAT) on one single hardware platform. Quadrant uses advanced MLAT algorithms to provide 3D position measurements, and offers lightweight, cost-efficient ADS-B sensors as a replacement for – or addition to – raditional radars.

Surveillance Data Distribution

SDDS-NG is a state-of-the-art solution for the easy and safe interconnection of any system that handles surveillance data. In ATC, the need to integrate an increasing number of surveillance systems is well-known. However, due to changing technologies and additional surveillance data users, the necessary stability of surveillance distribution environments is at risk. SDDS-NG is the safe and scalable solution, catering for all current and future surveillance distribution needs by providing the single access point for surveillance data.

Surveillance Data Processing

Accurate and reliable surveillance information for all objects within an area of interest is essential for safe and efficient traffic management. The MSDF multi-sensor data fusion and tracking system forms the powerful processing centrepiece of the Frequentis group’s surveillance solutions. It delivers highly accurate and highly reliable surveillance information services by making use of measurements from multiple surveillance sensors and fusing them into one seamless traffic situation picture for air and ground.

ATM Surveillance Tracker & Server

ARTAS is one of the most advanced and successful surveillance data processing systems in the world. Almost every European state uses ARTAS as its surveillance tracker for en-route and approach applications. Available as a turnkey solution from Frequentis Comsoft, ARTAS processes surveillance data reports from classical primary and secondary radars, Mode-S radars, wide area multilateration systems to establish a coherent and accurate air situation picture for a wide range of users.

Test, Analysis & Validation

RAPS-3 is an indispensable toolset for testing, analysis, validation and generation of surveillance data. It is widely used by manufactures as reference and test tool, by ANSPs in control centres or at radar sites for monitoring, troubleshooting or analysing any kind of surveillance information.

Monitoring & Analysis

SMD enables ANSPs and radar manufacturers to monitor and analyse ATC surveillance data. Its quality assurance and diagnostic features are supported by integrated recording and replay capabilities. These features make SMD an indispensable tool for use at operational ATM facilities and/or manufacturers’ test and analysis environments. It can be customised with additional features to perform in-depth analysis at various levels, including optional sensor simulation capabilities making the solution an ideal testbench for radar equipment manufacturers.

Control & Monitoring

To provide safe and efficient services, ANSPs operate a large number of different systems, often across multiple sites. This means that complexity and software distribution challenges are steadily increasing. Frequentis provides standardised solutions to integrate the control and monitoring of heterogeneous ATM environments, simplifying operations and reducing costs.

One billion hours of safe air travel with FREQUENTIS advanced voice and data gateway, VCX-IP

  • Frequentis has pioneered ATM-specific countrywide radio network solutions since 1995
  • Installations in 70 countries on six continents
  • The largest VCX-IP deployments integrate hundreds of radio, phone and data services, comprising over 1,500 network nodes, connecting more than 70 sites with multiple centres

The Frequentis voice communication network solution, VCX-IP, has evolved significantly since its initial development around two decades ago. It started as a network solution to enhance network functionality, such as shared access to radios and radars. Several country-wide deployments in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Austria, Oman and Brazil are successful milestones that have contributed considerably to making Frequentis the market leader in network solutions for Air Traffic Management (ATM).

Morocco upgrades aeronautical message handling with Frequentis Comsoft

Morocco upgrades aeronautical message handling with Frequentis Comsoft

The Moroccan Airports Authority, ONDA (Office National Des Aéroports), entrusted Frequentis Comsoft with the upgrade of their message handling and switching capability in line with latest ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) basic and extended AMHS (ATS Message Handling System) service profiles.

Thanks to its strategic location, Morocco is an important hub for air traffic flows between many regions of the world. The continuous and secure flow of aeronautical messages is crucial to safe air traffic management, which is why upgrades to new standards and the implementation of new features are vital in preparing ONDA for the future demands and challenges of its airspace.

“Frequentis Comsoft successfully upgraded our message handling system, smoothly, ahead of schedule and with no interruption to normal operation, despite COVID restrictions. The upgrade enables us to further support the increasing demands of our service, both now and in the future.” said Bartal Said, Information Processing Division Manager, ONDA.
