Vehicle Movement Area Transponder (VMAT)

L3Harris Symphony® VMAT

The L3Harris Symphony® VMAT ADS-B vehicle tracking unit solution provides accurate, real-time tracking of surface vehicles across the airport movement area.

The most accurate real-time ground vehicle position reporting available 

VMATs are compatible with the FAA’s ADS-B surveillance data network currently integrated into the National Airspace System (NAS). Each vehicle is clearly and uniquely identified, providing an essential addition to any surface movement guidance and control system. This increases operational safety and efficiency for all airport stakeholders.

Ground vehicle incursions in critical safety and movement areas on airport surfaces are on the rise. VMAT shares ground vehicle position, velocity and identity data with other ground vehicles, aircraft and ground station equipment. It transmits location data once per second providing a reliable real-time depiction of VMAT-equipped vehicles and their proximity to aircraft and other airport assets.

VMAT automatically allows vehicle movement data to be integrated into the Symphony® OpsVue™ and MobileVue® products. This combined approach provides operations management and vehicle operators complete airport-wide situational awareness.

VMAT tracking unit internal and external mount options

L3Harris provides options for an internally and externally mounted VMAT unit. Each VMAT unit is fully compliant with FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 150/5220-26. It enables continuous transmission of vehicle position and identification. Data is received by the FAA ADS-B ground infrastructure and displayed on air traffic controller monitors. This allows for full awareness of the location of the vehicles in the movement area. Vehicle identification data is programmed through a universal serial bus (USB) maintenance interface.
