The Solution

SMARTENER™

SMARTENER™ - an acronym for SMall Area Real Target ENhancER - is a patented data processing system, which takes information from multiple radar scanners and sends filtered information to existing radar display systems.

It requires no internal changes to the existing radar display, or radar data processor. As it has no moving parts, SMARTENER™ has high reliability and low maintenance costs, and is compatible with plot-extracted radars.

SMARTENER™’s patented algorithm is the only system capable of dealing with the problems where more than one radar scanner has visibility of a group of wind turbines:

  • Radar returns will be suppressed if they are determined to be a wind turbine, or
  • Displayed on the radar screen if the return is validated to be an aircraft, so that
  • Aircraft tracks are maintained whilst wind turbine clutter is eliminated.

Why is SMARTENER™ better than previous solutions?

The disadvantages with traditional radar infill solutions are:

  • The low-level coverage of the local radar will be reduced
  • An additional radar is required that is out-of-sight of the wind turbines
  • An additional radar may be required to provide low-level coverage
  • Aircraft tracks can suffer discontinuity due to synchronisation and turning rate differences between the radar scanners, which can lead to
  • Aircraft needing increased separation for safe operation.

With SMARTENER™, there is no reduction in radar coverage, no boundary issues, no track discontinuities and radar performance is maintained. And, SMARTENER™ has been designed to meet all of the safety assurance requirements of the European aviation industry.
