Paper Abstract

In the present work is presented an Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems (A-SMGCS). NOVA Radar Processing and Display Systems provide comprehensive traffic display for approach, tower and surface movement controllers. The NOVA enhanced Surface Movement Radar System forms the hearth of an advanced integrated surface movement guidance and control system (A-SMGCS). The NOVA 9000 Series has been developed in cooperation with ATC authorities, organizations and individual controllers to suit airport operational and safety requirements. It employs an evolutionary design process to permit system expansion and upgrades at low risk. NOVA 9000 is based on well-proven commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology. An Open System architecture is employed to ease implementation and communication with other systems, and to permit the system to be tailor-made to the operational requirements of different users. This open-architecture approach provides a modular and scaleable system designed for easy expansion or modification for future enhancements as the airport's infrastructure develops. NOVA 9000's Basic Building Blocks include: (1) Radar Analyzer and Compressor (RANC), (2) Surveillance Data Server (SDS), (3) Runway Incursion Monitoring and Conflict Alert System (RIMCAS), (4) Controller Working Position (CWP), (5) Recording and Playback System (RPS), (6) Technical Control And Monitoring System (TECAMS).
