Primary Surveillance Radar (PSR) is of significant importance to civil air traffic in term of providing important surveillance information. The surrounding terrain and facilities are the main factors that affect the PSR’s performance. To ensure aircraft flight safety, it is necessary to evaluate the influence of terrain and facilities around the radar site. Take airport in the eastern China region as an example, which is planning the construction of maglev railway in near area, this research analyses and evaluates of the railway influence on primary surveillance radar. The results indicate: peak noise magnetic field in created when maglev train tracts and brakes; the peak and the average field strength will not affect the normal operation of the ATC primary radar; when maglev railway train is passing by, the operation of the PSR is able to maintain its normal performance.
