Military range utilization is increasing in line with increased security and defense requirements. Combat training missions are critical to defense readiness. Current range surveillance and management systems are often inadequate and do not provide enough detail or accuracy for safe flight operations tracking.
An unintrusive, low-profile, low-power system is required to operate in remote or unimproved areas, providing real-time targeting and safety data sufficient to handle the increase in training or operations requirements. A mature system is required to ensure an acceptable degree of availability, maintainability, operability and survivability in operational environments.
Additionally, Emergency Management Agencies (EMAs) and local first responders must have real-time, reliable and accurate information about aircraft movements in their area of responsibility, especially when these include:
To meet this objective, EMAs require cost-effective, reliable and accurate flight tracking and analysis systems that can add value to existing systems and technologies through rapid deployment and ready integration.
MSS by ERA is widely deployed for air traffic control purposes. Its extreme accuracy, high update rate and ability to be deployed in challenging terrain makes it the ideal solution to meet the high-performance surveillance demands of military bases and ranges and homeland surveillance areas over land and sea. MSS by ERA is a flexible solution for a wide range of applications that require rapid deployment. MSS by ERA can be deployed in both permanent and portable configurations to provide accuracy within a few meters, sub-second update rates and low-level coverage in even the most challenging terrains.
