Military and Security


ERA provides the most advanced technology for today's air defense, security and military range operations.  

ERA's passive surveillance technology provides an unmatched ability to "see without being seen" and has a long heritage of innovation for leading defense and security forces around the world. Two of these important technologies are Passive Emitter Tracking (PET) and Passive Coherent Location (PCL).

ERA’s PET technology, VERA-NG by ERA, is a mature technology deployed in Asia, Europe and the Americas, which tracks aircraft, vehicles, and other targets based on passive tracking of emissions, including radars, jammers, IFF transponders, DME/TACAN interrogators, Datalink and other communication, navigation and surveillance systems. Since beginning, ERA has invested heavily in the next PET technology and has participated in various demonstrations of the technology for NATO applications.

One of the most promising technologies that could alter the field of air surveillance is the Passive Coherent Location (PCL) system. For targets that do not emit signals, ERA’s next PCL system shall track and classify targets using reflections of existing third-party emitters such as FM radio.

As the importance of air defense and military ATC has increased for leading military forces, the importance of effective airbase and range management for training and combat missions has likewise received increased attention. ERA solutions provide accurate surveillance for challenging terrain and extreme climates. Multi-sensor surveillance system by ERA provides mobile and fixed-range management solutions for the world's leading defense organizations.


Air defense and passive surveillance are critical elements of today’s military and security operations. VERA-NG by ERA addresses this by providing the most advanced and state-of-the-art Passive Surveillance System designed for detection, location, identification and tracking of air, ground and naval targets. The Vera heritage and worldwide reputation as a powerful surveillance solution extends over many decades with systems successfully deployed in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

VERA-NG by ERA is a deployable air command and control system component (DAC) and processes radars, jammers, SSR/IFF transponders, TACAN/DME interrogators, DataLinks and other onboard emitters. 

The system is a proven Passive ESM Tracker (PET) that utilizes well-proven Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) multilateration techniques to triangulate on a broad range of emissions.

VERA-NG by ERA offers a covert, electronic and physical, surveillance capability that is not vulnerable to anti-radar weapon systems. The system’s design is fully mobile and can be delivered in a “roll-on/roll-off” configuration, ensuring its readiness for rapid tactical deployment. 

VERA-NG by ERA uses advanced finger-printing techniques to identify targets without the need for ground-based transmissions. VERA-NG by ERA can also be configured to fulfil missions that require passive 3D radar with extremely high capacity for simultaneous target tracking.

According official CANSO information there were 199 exhibitors and 6929 visitors.

Madrid, Spain, March 13th, 2015 ERA has been awarded a contract to modernize its multilateration surface system at Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport. This contract forms an integral part of the Remote Tower (rTWR) project recently awarded to Indra Navia by Hungarian Air Navigation Services Provider (ANS).


Pardubice, March 9th, 2015 The Indonesian Minister of Transportation Ignasius Jonan accompanied by the Indonesian Ambassador to the Czech Republic Aulia Aman Rachman and the Ambassador to Poland Peter F. Gontha visited ERA headquarters in Pardubice last week. Several CEOs of the Indonesian state owning companies such as AirNav Indonesia or Garuda Airlines were also present.

Pardubice, February 10th, 2015 Officials of the Defence and Security Industry Association (DSIA) organized their latest meeting in Pardubice in order to pay tribute to ERA Company, one of the long-term DSIA members. The primary goal of the visit was the introduction of passive radiolocation methods and a presentation of the ERA military solutions portfolio to other respected DSIA members – military equipment suppliers and vendors. The presentation and guided tour of the ERA premises was part of the DSIA regular meeting, usually held every other month. During these meetings the participants discuss general issues related to the defence industry.

Pardubice, February 10th, 2015 An official delegation from the Kingdom of Sweden visited the ERA headquarters in Pardubice last week.
