To support increased traffic volumes on already congested air routes, reduced vertical separation minima (RVSM) are being introduced globally, increasing demands on the accuracy of aircraft avionics that report altitude.
RVSM is focused on reducing vertical separation minimums from 2000 ft to 1000 ft between FL 290 and FL 410. Height Monitoring Units, necessary to verify the Minimum Aircraft System Performance Specification (MASPS) of aircrafts, are found beneath the Upper Air Route (UAR) to ensure that aircraft maintain requested flight levels.
ERA's multilateration technologies have been proven to provide the measuring element of a height monitoring unit. Due to its extreme accuracy and reliability, MSS by ERA is able to precisely measure aircraft altitudes in a given UAR through its Total vertical error Measurement Unit (TMU).
In 1998, ERA was selected by EUROCONTROL to deliver Height Measuring Element (HME) within the Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) program. The system was delivered and installed at Linz, Austria, as a part of the HMU system for the EUROCONTROL RVSM program and has been operational since May 2000.
Pardubice, November 20th, 2013 The ERA MSS system installed at the Sochi International Airport went officially operational in November to ensure the future safety of thousands of participants flying to the Caucasus region of Russia as part of the 2014 Olympic Games.
Pardubice, October 18th, 2013 Participants in the NATO Airforce Armaments Group summit from several NATO countries visited the headquarters of ERA Company in Pardubice on October 18th 2013. The primary goal of the visit was the introduction of alternative radiolocation methods and a presentation of the ERA military solutions portfolio (particularly its precision approach functionality) to members of the Aerospace Capability Group 5 on Global Mobility.
Tashkent, October 2nd - 4th, 2013 Two specialists from ERA Company were invited to the conference EURASIA held in Tashkent on October 2nd – 4th, 2013. ERA traditionally participated as a permanent observer at this 28th gathering of the coordinating council and group of aeronavigation experts (KGE) from eight post-soviet republics.
Prague, September 2013 The ERA Company gratefully accepted an invitation from the Czech Air National Service Provider at the beginning of autumn of this year and organized a two days workshop for its guests at the ANSP headquarters in Jeneč in order to present the results of newly developed surveillance technologies such as MSPSR.
Prague, September, 2013 ERA Company took part in the 71th NEDBAG (NATO Emitter DataBase Advisory Group) conference held in Prague from September 23th – 26th 2013.
