• Description

The SkyRadar PSR & SSR experimenter is part of SkyRadar’s modular Radar Training System. It can be added plug-and-play to the CloudServer and is operated through SkyRadar’s FreeScopes Software.

It includes the following simulators:

  • Primary Surveillance Radar
    Controller Work Position of PSR Pulse
    Controller Work Position of PSR Pulse
    • Pulse
    • Constant Wave (CW) / Doppler
    • Frequency Modulated Constant Wave (FMCW)
    • Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
    • inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (iSAR)
  • Secondary Surveillance Radar
    • Mode-A/C
    • Mode-S
    • ADS-B
    • Collision Avoidance (TCAS) and Minimum Height Alert

The system can be operated through ethernet or wireless networks. A minimum of 8 pseudo-pilot positions (PPP) can provide concurrent airspace settings. The number of concurrent users (controller work positions CWP) is not limited and can exceed 500 concurrent students.

Hardware Features of Simulation Server

  • One (1) 19” Rack Server
  • Two (2) Processors Intel Xeon E5-2630v3, 2,40 GHz, 8/16 1866, or similar
  • One (1) Operating System Windows Server R2 Standard or newer
  • The server operates with 16 independent actual processing units (called “cores”)


PSR & SSR Experimenter Software Features

The simulator works with

Pseudo Pilot Display of SkyRadar's PSR & SSR Simulator
Pseudo Pilot Display


    • Pseudo Pilot Positions (PPP)
      • PPPs allow to choose and place aircrafts in the airspace, to set speed, course, position and altitude
      • In addition, the PPP is the control center for application-dependent controls e.g., for environmental reflections, polarization, range resolution, angle resolution, etc.
    • Controller Work Positions (CWP)
      • CPWs represent the view of the air traffic controller
      • All CWPs include a PPI-Scope, an A-Scope and a B-Scope, and application dependent controls such as sliders for brightness and amplification in the scopes, filters such as Sensitive Time Control, Signal Amplification, Threshold/Limiter or the function of Moving Target Indication.


    Radar Modes

    • PSR Pulse
      • Object detection, environmental reflections, clutter processing, optimisation of radar display settings,
        Radar Cross Section analysis, Sensitive Time Control, threshold and amplification,
        change of polarization, etc.
