Aerodrome “CNS Safeguarding” or “Technical Safeguarding” ensures that buildings do not interfere with the performance of Communication, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) systems, such as primary or secondary radars, conventional radio navigation aids, radio transmitter/receiver antennas, etc.
These systems are very vulnerable to adverse effects caused by physical obstacles such as buildings, cranes, wind turbines as well as mobile objects (aircraft, construction equipment). Therefore, to ensure safe air operations, national and international aviation regulations define protection surfaces and approval procedures for new developments and constructions (e.g. ICAO EUR DOC 015 – managing Building Restricted Areas - BRA, ICAO Annex 10, National Requirements, etc.). The rules and associated concepts introduced by these regulations are complex and frequently misunderstood by the stakeholders. As protection surfaces are very restrictive, it often leads to conflicts between developers and airspace users – though, in many cases, technical solutions may be available to resolve or minimise adverse impacts.
The aim of this 3-day training course is to provide project developers, planners, authorities and regulators, aerodromes operators and Air Navigation Service Providers with an in-depth overview of the CNS Safeguarding purposes, principles, processes, modelling tools and methods, as well as technical solutions for mitigating impacts and enabling developments.
This course includes an overview of several national safeguarding regulations and practices, and presents numerous practical examples of compatibility assessments and “Specialist Engineering Analysis” as required for infringements of BRA surfaces. These real-life examples cover different CNS equipment, obstacle types (terminal buildings, aircraft and vehicles, cranes, etc.) and illustrate the methods and commercial tools available for such assessments together with their advantages and limitations. Special attention is also given to the assessment of wind farm projects and the presentation of the most recent technical solutions to mitigate shadowing and cluttering issues.
airsight offers this training course on request, worldwide. At the end of the course, all participants will receive an airsight certificate based on EASA training regulations, which is highly recognized throughout the aviation industry.
