Scientists from St. Petersburg are working to create a unique landing system

Modern aviation, both military and civil, is inconceivable without take-off and landing systems. But what if the pilots have to carry out their tasks on unprepared sites - in the mountains, on ice floes or offshore drilling platforms? A group of specialists from the St. Petersburg University of Telecommunications, headed by Professor Evgeny Borisov, is working on the development of a small-sized radar air traffic control system.

The system will include several small-sized posts that maintain continuous communication with aircraft and, thus, determine their coordinates and characteristics during an approach. Depending on the tasks being solved, the number of posts can vary from 5 to 36. The system is designed for almost any type of aircraft - drones, helicopters, transport aircraft.

The system is very compact. Its delivery to the site of installation and deployment does not present any particular problem, as well as its subsequent operation. It is well protected from all kinds of "jammers", thanks to special counter systems.
