COMSOFT, a German surveillance expert, has customised and installed a modern automation solution for the Swiss armed forces’ airport surveillance radar.

The display solution processes surveillance data while incorporating an interface to the local weather system in orde to present the current air situation in one integrated picture.

The system is based on a modular and open architecture to facilitate possible future extensions and to provide radar approach control and support of tower control.

Armasuisse, the federal competence centre for the procurement of technologically complex systems and equipment, contracted Comsoft for the modernisation programme in 2008.
