airport surveillance radar

Radar normally employed in a terminal area as an aid to approach and departure control. It displays the range and the azimuth of all aircraft around the airport but not the elevation data. The radar also can be used as an instrument approach aid. It is designed for radar coverage up to 60 NM around the airport.
