Document Description
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is cooperating with the U.S. Air Force (USAF) to install advanced digital radars for improved airport surveillance. The government plans to install Airport Surveillance Radars, Model 11 (ASR-11s) at civilian and military airports throughout the United States (U.S.). The objectives of the ASR-11 facilities are to detect aircraft and track their movements in the region of airports, thereby promoting safe and efficient use of air space. The FAA plans to install an ASR-11 to serve Santa Maria Public Airport (SMX)/Captain G. Allan Hancock Field, Santa Maria, California. The ASR-11 would also provide radar coverage of Vandenberg Air Force Base (VBG), Santa Barbara County, California. SMX and VBG are currently served by an Airport Surveillance Radar, Model 7 (ASR-7), located at VBG.
