Description

This report was produced by RES - Renewable Energy Systems Ltd, it is an appraisall of Raytheon's  mitigation solutions to susceptible interference caused by wind turbines affecting the fleet of primary radars used by NERL - NATS En-Route Limited.

NATS En-Route Limited (NERL) are the sole controller of civilian en-route air traffic control over the UK. Through a network of radars, radio-navigation aids and areas of restricted and controlled airspace. NERL can vector and advise instrumented aircraft that are transiting the country (i.e not taking off or landing). The fleet of primary radars in use by NERL are currently susceptible to interference caused by wind turbines, however in order to safely enable the construction of wind farms the manufacturer of the radar, Raytheon, has been commissioned to investigate mitigation solutions.

Raytheon were developing a variety of advanced mitigation techniques specifically for their en-route ASR 10 and ASR 23 radars. The techniques being investigated included Concurrent Beam Operation, Constant False Alarm Rate Processing, radial speed dependent clutter maps and improved tracking algorithms. 
This report was not intended to and did not appraise other aspects of the Raytheon R&D work of which the success will not be known until formal field trials have been conducted.
