Lockheed Martin and ARINC have formed a team to provide the US Air Force with a new deployable air traffic control radar system.

The radar system has been designed to rapidly establish airfield operations anywhere in the world for military and disaster relief efforts.

The system is part of the air force’s deployable radar approach control (D-RAPCON) programme.

It will provide regional coverage and aircraft separation, similar to a typical civilian airport, on demand through a transportable surveillance radar and air traffic control operations shelter.

Lockheed will provide a version of its field-proven TPS-79 tactical surveillance radar and Federal Aviation Administration-certified air traffic management software for the programme.

ARINC will provide the transportable operations shelter.
