MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Work on an automated radar system for aircraft landing is set to be finished in Russia in early 2016, the United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation said Monday.
"At the moment, a prototype PRL-2ST precision radar, as well as the design documentation for the entire radar system are finished. Revision of software is underway. Work on the RSP-2ST is scheduled to be completed in early 2016," a corporation spokesperson told RIA Novosti.
The system renders radio communication between flight operators and the plane crew commanders unnecessary, which limits the possibility of human errors, the spokesperson stressed.
The system is expected to be used in civil and experimental aviation.
