This study was commissioned to examine the feasibility of deploying a new radar in the Greater Wash area to provide extra observations around and above offshore windfarms. The new radar would "in-fill" regions of air space where surveillance coverage is predicted to be lost due to interference caused by offshore wind turbines. The proposed solutions differ in terms of technology employed, the level of detail provided, and product maturity; some companies also provided more than one possible solution. Where possible the results of radar trials involving real equipment observing real aircraft above windfarms were sought and factored into the report's conclusions and recommendations.
