India chooses COMSOFT for ADS-B roll-out

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has selected Germany’s surveillance business  COMSOFT to perform the ADS-B roll-out for 14 sites across India including the Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea.

From March, a network of 14 ground stations across the South-Asian country delivering air surveillance in non-radar air space will be equipped with two sensors each in dual-redundant configuration delivering target information to the individually linked ATC automation system.

Including ADS-B technology in the overall surveillance strategy will increase efficiency and safety in all operational procedures and will supplement the radar coverage which is restricted by terrain and obstacles.

No maintenance, high reliability as well as high performance were key aspects of the chosen system, which are offered by the unique design of the COMSOFT ground station. Both a local and a central monitoring and control system are integrated allowing for remote status monitoring and maintenance.

COMSOFT’s Quadrant is the core module of each ground station offering a high performance RF front-end combined with advanced signal processing techniques. Its excellent long range performance makes it ideally suited to the operational requirements. Quadrant generally exceeds a range of 250 NM.
