ERA Hosted NATO SET Panel 195 in Prague
Prague, November 11th - 13th, 2015 ERA hosted the 10th meeting of NATO SET-195 panel representatives in its Prague office from the 11th to the 13th November focused on DMPAR (Deployable Multi-band Passive Active Radar) short term solution verification. The meeting was widely attended by representatives from CNIT Italy, ERA Czech Republic, FFI Norway, Fraunhofer FHR Germany, PIT-RADWAR Poland, Thales France and WUT Poland.
The fruitful discussions during the two-day meeting were focused on collecting data processing and evaluations from multiple sensors during NATO SET-195 trials DETOUR (DMPAR Evaluation Trials for Operationally Upgraded Radar) hosted in the Hradec Kralove district in September 2014.
One of the key objectives was the preparation and development of evaluation techniques for centralized and decentralized processing of measured data following the multiband multichannel active passive radar approach introduced in the SET-152 study. The SET-195 study should note the benefits of the active radar component combined with a passive multistatic radar.
Apart from DETOUR, the activity group SET-195 will meet again on symposium focused on this topic which will be held in spring 2016 in Italy.
The final meeting day was devoted to a factory visit of ERA and a presentation entitled the Multilateration (TDOA) system and its application in the ATM and military sector with a focus on current trends in surveillance (mainly civil) and its application to frequent use cases. The key presentation part was a description of the product life cycle starting with contract preparation up to the final delivery accepted by the customer.
