Performance Evaluations are designed as an independent testing regime for all kinds of Radar systems commissioned around the world. A typical test would involve our technical team visiting the clients Radar sites and performing specific tests at a sub-system level to ascertain the exact performance level of the Radar system. The results of these tests are then delivered through a detailed report which outlines the performance state of the Radar and also provides recommendations for restoring system performance.
Monitoring performance trends helps our clients identify early signs of system degradation and prevent a complete system failure.
Performance Evaluation also helps in compliance with ICAO and EUROCONTROL specifications
The entire Test routine is divided into three levels:
A RASS Level 1 evaluation provides a near real time monitoring of key radar quality parameters on a 24/7 basis.
Key performance parameters are monitored through trend analysis to ensure correct operation of a sensor.
These analyses are completed through the use of the RASS-R family of COTS products.
A RASS Level 2 evaluation provides a detailed technical analysis of the performance of the individual sub- systems that comprise the radar system.
This analysis will result in definition of the sensors coverage capabilities and operational performance capabilities and/or limitations against established standards or requirements.
The level 2 evaluation is conducted using the RASS-S family of COTS hardware and software components.
A RASS Level 3 evaluation can be a single or multiple series of special tests designed to assess a radar system at a deeper level than the tests conducted in a sensor baseline evaluation. These tests are typically conducted during Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) or Site Acceptance Testing (SAT).
Level 3 evaluations are made using the RASS-S family of equipment as well as specialist COTS equipment such as the Radar Environment Simulator (RES) and Radar Target Generator (RTG).
