“There are two basic types of surveillance radar used to monitor activity in our highways in the skies. Kind of like the radar guns used by police, but you don't get a ticket for speeding! First of all, there's the Air Route Surveillance Radar (ARSR), which is a long range system to monitor airplanes during the enroute phase of flight. And then there's the Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR), which is a relatively short range radar system used to monitor airplanes operating within the airspace immediately surrounding some airports. It's used primarily for a non precision radar instrument approach to a landing.”
