Transportation safety, national security and technological innovation are entwined in ways that could never have been imagined a decade ago. Integrating advanced technology and security features into sensitive projects such as such as terminal Doppler weather radar, Doppler Very High Frequency Omidirectional Range with Tactical Air Navigation (DVORTAC) and Digital Airport Surveillance Radar* system installations requires specialized skill and competence. David E. Ross Construction Company is among a handful of contractors entrusted by Fortune 500 Companies such as Raytheon Technical Services to construct facilities in which precision is measured in as little as 1/32 of an inch.

* Digital Airport Surveillance Radar (DASR) is a new terminal air traffic control radar system that replaces current analog systems with new digital technology. The DASR system detects aircraft position and weather conditions in the vicinity of civilian and military airfields. The existing airport surveillance radar systems are being replaced to improve reliability, provide additional weather data, reduce maintenance cost, improve performance, and provide digital data to new digital automation systems for presentation on air traffic controller displays.

* Precision Runway Monitor (PRM) is a standalone, electronically scanned monopulse secondary surveillance radar that updates essential aircraft target information four to five times faster than conventional radar equipment. PRM provides air traffic controllers with a new tool that helps them optimize the frequency of aircraft arrivals and reduce delays related to airport landing capacity. The system allows air traffic controllers to maintain a safe rate of aircraft landings on parallel, closely spaced runways during dense air traffic and adverse weather conditions.

* Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR) enhances safety and air travel through detection and reporting of weather conditions including hazardous wind shear in terminal areas. The system allows pilots and air traffic control personnel to make safe landing and take-off decisions for aircraft.
