DS/EN 303 213-6-1 V2.1.1:2016

Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS); Part 6: Harmonised Standard covering the essential requirements of article 3.2 of the Directive 2014/53/EU for deployed surface movement radar sensors; Sub-part 1: X-band sensors using pulsed signals and transmitting power up to 100 kW



The present document applies to X-band radar sensors intended for the surveillance of airport surface movement traffic
with the following characteristics:
• Operating in one or both of the following frequency ranges:
- 9 000 MHz to 9 200 MHz and 9 300 MHz to 9 500 MHz utilizing modulated or unmodulated pulses.
• Transmitter Peak Envelope Power up to 100 kW.
• The transceiver-antenna connection is using a hollow metallic rectangular waveguide.
• The antenna is rotating, waveguide-based and passive.
• At the transceiver output an RF-circulator is used.
NOTE 1: Since transceiver and antenna are hollow metallic rectangular waveguide based the frequency range for
measurements that needs to be addressed covers 6,56 GHz to 26 GHz The lower limit of this frequency
range is obtained as cut-off frequency of the combination of WR112/R84 taper section and a WR90/R100
Waveguide IEC 60153-2 [i.3]. The upper limit corresponds to the upper limit stated in
ERC/Recommendation 74-01 [i.5].
NOTE 2: Since at the transceiver output an RF circulator is used, it is assumed that the transceiver characteristics
remain independent from the antenna.
NOTE 3: Aeronautical Surface Movement Radars covered by the present document are expected to use the bands
9 000 MHz to 9 200 MHz and/or 9 300 MHz to 9 500 MHz. According Article 5 of the ITU Radio
Regulations [i.6] the band 9 000 MHz to 9 200 MHz is allocated to the Aeronautical Radionavigation
Service on a primary basis and the band 9 300 MHz to 9 500 MHz is allocated to the Radionavigation
Service on a primary basis.
The present document contains requirements to demonstrate that "... Radio equipment shall be so constructed that it
both effectively uses and supports the efficient use of radio spectrum in order to avoid harmful interference",
Directive 2014/53/EU [i.1].
In addition to the present document, other ENs that specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements
under other parts of article 3 of the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU [i.1] as well as essential requirements under
the SES Interoperability Regulation 552/2004 [i.9] and related implementing rules and/or essential requirements
