Comsoft to install SDDS-NG system for Brazilian Air Force

Comsoft has been awarded a contract by FT Automacao Industrial to equip radar sites of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) with its new surveillance data distribution system-next generation (SDDS-NG).

Comsoft has been awarded a contract by FT Automacao Industrial to equip radar sites of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) with its new surveillance data distribution system-next generation (SDDS-NG).

The installation of the system is part of a prime contract awarded to the German air traffic control (ATC) supplier for the service at 22 locations.

The surveillance data distribution system is a successor of Comsoft’s Radar Message Conversion and Distribution System (RMCDS), and is one of the company’s core products and a platform of several surveillance networks for a wide range of air navigation service providers (ANSPs).

The modular system is designed to serve as a key platform for communication between various ranges of protocols in addition to performing exchange, conversion, filtration, verification, as well as surveillance data distribution in heterogeneous ATC/ATM environments.

The systems are capable of bringing surveillance data from radar sensors of different generations and manufacturers to the data processing systems in a redundant fashion, and also enable the provision of possible addition of functionalities related to surveillance including automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) or wide area multilateration (WAM).

The SWAL3 and SIL2-compliant systems will undergo all necessary tests prior to their scheduled operational service.
