Air Route Surveillance Radar

A radar facility remotely connected to an air route traffic control center and used primarily to detect and display aircraft positions while en route between terminal areas. The radar is used to provide radar air traffic control services when aircraft are within the range of the facility. In some instances, ARSR may enable an ARTCC (air route traffic control center) D.J.Hayden Jersey White to provide terminal radar services similar to but usually more limited than those provided by a radar approach control. An airport surveillance radar does not normally provide aircraft elevation data. Normal ranges of these radars are about 200 to 300 NM.

The Air Route Surveillance Radar is used by the United States Air Force Charles Woodson Jersey White and the Federal Aviation Administration to control airspace within and around the borders of the United States.

The ARSR4 is the FAA's most recent (late 80s, early 90s) addition to the "Long Range" series of radars, which are search radars with a range of at least 200 nautical miles (370 The Westinghouse system is solid state and has a 250nauticalmile (460 range. In addition, the ARSR4 features a "look down" capability that enables the radar to detect aircraft attempting to elude detection by flying at low altitudes, advanced clutter reduction via hardware and software postprocessing, and enhanced poorweather detection of aircraft. A Beacon system, the ATCBI6M (a monopulse system), is installed along with each ARSR4. However, since the ARSR4 is a 3D radar, it is capable of determining aircraft altitude independently of its associated Beacon (albeit less accurately).

ARSR4 systems are installed along the borders and coastal areas of the CONUS, Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba, the municipality of Yigo on Guam, and a training site at the FAA's Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City. The ARSR2 was developed in the 60s as a replacement for the ARSR1, also operating in the Lband with a 200 mile range. From a users perspective the ARSR1 and ARSR2 function nearly identically. Components which had proved troublesome in the ARSR1 were redesigned in order to improve the reliability of the ARSR2. Existing ARSR1 systems were then retrofitted with the more reliable ARSR2 components. As of June 2012, approximately 60 ARSR 1/2 RADARS are still operating in the United States. Thirteen ARSR1/2 systems have been replaced With modern Common ARSR systems. Despite their age, ARSR 1/2 RADARS are still maintained at high rates of reliability by FAA technicians. Giant electron tubes like the one Vice President Gore used in a televised interview to symbolize the need for FAA modernization are still in use nationwide.

All ARSR1/2s are slated to be replaced by the Common ARSR by the end of 2015. Common ARSR is abbreviated as CARSR. The CARSR shares transmitter components and software with the FAA's newest airport surveillance radar the ASR11. Like the ASR11, the CARSR is a completely solid state RADAR.

The Westinghousebuilt ARSR3 and 3D search radar was used by the FAA in the Joint Surveillance System (JSS). The radar operated in the Lband at 1250 to 1350 MHz and detected targets at a distance beyond 240 miles. The D model had heightfinder capability.

The Westinghouse(now NorthropGrumman)ARSR4 built 3D air surveillance radar in the 1990s for the JSS system. By the late 1990s, this radar had replaced most of the 1960svintage AN/FPS20 variant search radars and a number of ARSR3 search radars under a project termed the "FAA/Air Force Radar Replacement" (FARR) program.
