Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 8 (UNI) The Southern Air Command (SAC) today got a Pilot Integrated Air Command and Control System that will help in real time networking of civil and military radars in the peninsula.
''''This system will help the SAC in carrying out real time networking of civil and military radars and will act as a force multiplier for IAF in the Southern Peninsula,'' Air Marshal S Radhakrishnan, AOC-in-C of SAC said.
Air Vice Marshal Rajinder Singh, SASO, SAC was also present on the occasion, a release said here.
The system integrates the radar pictures of the IAF, Navy and the Civil radars in the Southern Peninsula through a Multi Radar Data Fusion Software and presents the complete Air Situation Picture of the Peninsula in Real Time in the SAC Headquarters.
The system would also provide facilities to support Air Defence functions like Automatic Surveillance, Identification, Threat Evaluation, Interception and Recovery. It would enable the IAF to have a bird's eye view of the air space in the entire southern region.
It would also help the IAF to monitor all civil and military air movements and avoid civil aircraft straying into unauthorised air space.
