Riding on the wings of green energy, Raytheon solution allows airports and wind farms to coexist

Air Traffic Control Wind Farm Interference Mitigation at Raytheon - The past decade has seen a tremendous growth of wind turbine farms. While the benefits of wind energy are apparent, the potential hazards are less onvious. These hazards include the inherent tendency of wind turbines to severely interfere with air traffic control radars. Raytheon, a world leader in air traffic control radar technology, is applying its resources to solve this problem. The wind turbine interference problem has drawn considerable attention in recent years. A number of mitigation approaches have been proposed and pursued, ranging from special anti-reflective coatings on wind turbine blades, to the fielding of additional gap-fill radars in the vicinity of the air traffic control (ATC) radar site, to data suppression algorithms that edit out target detections or inhibit track formation in wind f...
