ERA has shown the path to singlelateration at the NSUR meeting
ERA participated in the seventh meeting of NSUR (Network Surveillance User Group) held in Brussels last week. After almost three Covid years of impersonal online meetings, Surveillance manufacturers were asked to summarize their progress and how they see the future of surveillance considering Air Traffic Management.
Product manager Vojtěch Pék answered this question with the presentation “ERA outlook on current and upcoming challenges in multistatic surveillance”. This opened the discussion about the possibility of using AoA (Angle of Arrival) alongside the well-known multilateration TDOA (Time Difference of Arrival) and TSOA (Time Sum of Arrival) and thus demonstrated the ERA path to singlelateration.
NSUR is a working group with dozens of members (mainly manufacturers and Air Navigation Service Providers) organized by EUROCONTROL. The meetings informed about the progress on airborne and ground ADS-B implementation along with spectrum issues. They recapitulated the latest events from EASA, ICAO and other institutions and provided view on standards such as Eurocae or ESASSP documents.
