radar monitoring

radar monitoring

The use of radar for the purpose of providing aircraft with information and advice relative to significant deviation from nominal flight path (ICAO). The radar controller observes and notes the deviation from the authorized flight path, route, or airway by the aircraft and advises the pilot. When applied specifically to the radar monitoring of instrument approaches [i.e., with precision approach radar (PAR) or radar monitoring of simultaneous instrument landing system/microwave landing system (ILS/MLS) approaches], it includes advice and instructions whenever aircraft nears or exceeds the prescribed PAR facility limits or simultaneous ILS/MLS no-transgression zone.

Vertically pointing radars, disdrometers, and rain gauges have been suggested for providing a reference that can be used for radar monitoring. While providing very valuable additional data, care should be taken in using these instruments for monitoring purposes because of differences in measurement volume sizes, vertical variation of precipitation (disdrometers and gauges), and uncertainty introduced by using radar reflectivity factor-rain rate relations (gauges).
