Preliminary results of Mode-S/3D Trial
PilotAware has been supporting a pure Bearingless target mode of detection for a number of years. This has been somewhat controversial with supporters and opponents having equally considered views on its usefulness. Given this background we have been working to improve this mode of operation with enhanced capabilities. Hence the idea was developed for Mode-S/3D, to augment the existing system with MLAT data, provided by 360Radar, to improve upon the data available from Mode-S bearingless targets. The Mode-S/3D Trial is due to conclude its first phase, therefore we would like to share our findings on the usage over the last 3-6 months, of this joint undertaking between 360Radar and PilotAware.
