Airfield Radar System (ARS)

Symphony® Airfield Radar System

Offered at a fraction of the cost of traditional radar technologies, Symphony® ARS covers up to a mile in every direction. This ground-breaking technology improves the situational awareness and efficiency of airfield security and operations personnel. 

Symphony® Airfield Radar System is a turn-key solution in operation at 20 European airports

The Symphony® ARS is a turn-key delivery, which simplifies installation. Symphony® ARS radar is in operation at 20 European airports and is now available in the U.S. 

  • Wide Beam 360° Radar – Covers the airfield like a streetlight, unlike narrow beam radars that are more like a flashlight 
  • Advanced Camera System – Thermal imager and high-density color and network video recorder provide real-time assessment and forensics 
  • Classification – The system knows the difference between people or wildlife and planes or vehicles 
  • User Defined Rules – Incorporate location, classification, speed, size, direction and previous behavior to reduce false alarms and only respond to real threats 
  • Tracking Areas – Customize tracking areas with unique parameters, rules and responses 
  • Interfaces with Existing Systems – Provides a two-way interface with legacy airport access control and surveillance systems 
  • 24x7 remote and onsite hardware and software support 
  • Integrated into Symphony® OpsVue™ and MobileVue® for improved situational awareness for airfield and security personnel
