Era Surveillance System at Berlin, Munich and Hamburg Airports
Era a.s., a subsidiary of SRA International, Inc., announced it has been selected by Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH (DFS) to deploy a multilateration and ADS-B surveillance solution at the Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport. The award announcement follows Era’s recent successful installations for DFS at Munich and Hamburg.
The Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport, scheduled to open in 2012, will become the German capital’s primary commercial airport and will serve its roughly 3.4 million residents. Era’s next-generation surveillance solution will be integrated into the airport’s advanced-surface movement guidance and control system and was chosen to ensure that the surface operations run as safely and efficiently as possible.
“DFS’s selection of Era, after Era’s successful deliveries in Munich and Hamburg, reinforces its position as a leader in next generation surveillance solutions,” said Era Systems Corporation Senior Vice President Kevin Layton. “MSS by Era provides high accuracy, coverage and reliability – and does so with extremely low acquisition and maintenance costs. This makes it the ideal surveillance solution for both new and existing airports.”
