ERA extends its presence in Hungary by supplying ADS-B system
ERA, a provider of advanced surveillance systems both for military and civilian solutions, will deliver another system to HungaroControl, a Hungarian Air Navigation Service Provider.
ERA signed a contract with HungaroControl to deliver a surveillance system based on ADS-B technology for the Kőrishegy and Püspökladány region. The system provides enhancement to already existing radar coverage.
On ADS-B technology
ADS-B represents dependent information on data from the aircraft's navigation system. ADS-B equipped aircraft broadcast their GNSS positions once per second. The information received by the ADS-B ground station includes the aircraft's identification, altitude, speed, velocity, etc.
HungaroControl, the Hungarian Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP), provides air navigation services in the Hungarian airspace and as of 2014, on a NATO assignment, in the upper airspace over Kosovo. It trains air traffic control personnel and conducts air navigation research and development.
