Qingdao ATM transfers radar for the Games


The Qingdao Air Traffic Management Station transferred its movable radar to provide greater service during the Olympic Games. The Qingdao station will play an important part in air traffic management during the Olympic Games and the Olympic sailing competition. It is estimated that daily landings and takeoffs at Qingdao Airport will break the 300 mark. However, Qingdao only has an Alenia radar to provide secondary radar signals. The old radar has been in operation for 12 years, thus its performance and reliability have dropped. If it is used during the Games, the risks will be high. To ensure the smooth air traffic management during the Olympics, the Qingdao ATM Station requested to transfer its movable radar. The service department worked overtime and cooperated with the Civil Aviation Air Traffic Control Technology and Equipment Development Co. to dismantle, install, adjust and test the radar, which was installed north of the weather station and about 420 meters away from the centerline of the runway. On June 13, the radar was installed successfully and passed the tests, including the distance, providing signal accuracy and other auxiliary functions.
