radar separation

radar separation

The separation used when aircraft position information is derived from radar sources (ICAO). The traffic is spaced out in accordance with the established minimums. The separation minimums are basically 5 NM and, at the discretion of the authority, when within 40 NM of the radar and below flight level 245, 3 NM; both these assume that primary and secondary radars are available. If only the secondary is available, then the radar separation is 8 NM.

That takes longer than the more sophisticated radar separation used in Singapore and elsewhere in the world, which allows a controller to more quickly take stock of radar returns from all aircraft in the area.
The objective of this research would demonstrate that normal radar separation standards would be adequate when it can be confirmed that the wake vortices are not in the flight path of the trailing airplane.
Neal Fine who is Senior Vice President of Technology for the Company, focuses on the Company's unique Aircraft Wake Safety Management (AWSM) system that is designed to integrate direct, real-time measurements of flight paths, weather parameters and wake vortex positions at flight critical locations with predicted information, enabling air traffic controllers to provide basic radar separation to all aircraft under normal conditions.
In 2004, Sensis MDS at Innsbruck Airport, Austria, was the first operational multilateration system for radar separation.

The Juneau WAM system uses multilateration to provide controllers at the Anchorage Air Route Traffic Control Center with high accuracy, high availability surveillance of aircraft and helicopters, enabling ATC-provided radar separation and traffic advisory services to pilots operating in the Juneau airspace.
