Detail Data
ID: 108
Acronym: MEARTS
Name: Microprocessor-En Route Automated Radar Tracking System
Type: System
Description: The Microprocessor-En Route Automated Radar Tracking System (MEARTS) is a radar processing system implemented with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment, for use in the Anchorage, Alaska Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) and Center Radar Approach Control (CERAPs) environments.  It provides single sensor and a mosaic display of traffic and weather using long- and short-range radars and at Anchorage it processes and displays Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) surveillance as well.  The MEARTS interfaces with multiple types of displays, including the flat panel Display System Replacement (DSR)(modified).

The Micro-En Route Automated Radar Tracking System (MEART) provides radar data processing and tracking, and utilizes display equipment to provide alphanumeric and flight data distribution. The MEART is a fully redundant, dual local area network system composed of commercial off-the-shelf components and provides automatic switchover capability upon failure. The MEART combines both en route and terminal air traffic operational functions. (Source: FSEP Desk Guide)
