Surveillance Monitoring System (SMS)
Surveillance Monitoring System (SMS) is our unique, scalable and real-time analysis system which is used to analyse system performance from multiple surveillance sensors.
SMS has the capability to monitor PSR/SSR/Mode-S radars, ADS-B stations, MLAT systems, A-SMGCS data, ASDE-X data or system track data (for example ARTAS multi radar tracker).
In today’s world, data from various sensors is fused in complex ATM systems often masking under-performing sensors. At an ATC level, there is an increasing demand for early notification of sensor degradation in order to assure a Quality of Service (QoS) on the track output to the Controller Work Positions.
Civil and Military ANSP’s often share sensor data in or between countries, based on contractual Service Level Agreements (SLA). Therefore, it is essential to know the quality of sensor data meets the contractual requirements. The SMS monitors and reports the quality of these sensor data by standardizing measurement and analysis across multiple ATM platforms.
