Beyond radar


Proven multilateration system for military application

The demand placed on range surveillance and airbase MIL systems is growing along with security and defence requirements.

The MSS (Multi-sensor Surveillance System) by ERA, widely deployed for air traffic control, is a mature surveillance system providing high availability, maintainability and survivability in all operational environments for military applications amongst others.

Its extreme accuracy, high update rate and ability to be deployed in any terrain, such as valleys and mountainous areas, makes it the ideal solution to meet the high-performance surveillance demands of military bases and ranges as well as homeland surveillance areas over land and sea.

MSS architecture


Ground Station Subsystem

A reliable, extremely robust and modular concept with an impressive number of MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) and easy maintainability of the ground station.

  • Unique modular concept
  • Easy scalability
  • Low life cycle cost
  • Compact size
  • Extreme weather-proof (IP67)

Central Processing Subsystem

The key component and heart of every multilateration system. ERA has developed TDOA processing to provide users with the most reliable surveillance information. The active parts of the system (if used) are driven by adaptive interrogation algorithms.

  • High data processing capability
  • Redundant concept
  • COTS based components
  • Hot back-up philosophy
  • Standard ASTERIX data output format

Remote Control and Management Subsystem

RCMS is designed to supervise the entire MSS. RCMS is presented in a web-based platform for easy accessibility and a user-friendly environment.

  • High management security
  • Redundant concept
  • SNMP based
  • Trouble-shooting guidance
  • System statistics
