There are many radar systems used within air traffic control (ATC) to enhance the performance and safety of monitoring air traffic. Radar systems include Surface Movement Radar (SMR), Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR), Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems (SMGCS) and Monopulse Secondary Surveillance Radar (MSSR). Air traffic control radar produces critical
information on an aircrafts position, speed, bearing, altitude and identity by using a radar transponder. Tower controllers will use a map of the area with the positions of all aircrafts arriving and departing. In extreme weather conditions when visibility is low, SMR is used to help control the taxiways and runways and to send safety alerts.
