A Research on BDS-Based Air Observation and Surveillance System
The paper makes an analysis of the problems arising from PLA air defense force (ADF)’s air observation post system as low accuracy in positioning measurement, long delay in air information transmission, difficult identification of aerial targets, limited range of disposition of observation posts, unsmooth transmission of coordinated information, and low confidentiality in air information transmission, and puts forward a systemic transformation of the visual observation posts in respect of reconnaissance equipment, network structure, air information transmission, etc., by use of Beidou navigation satellite system (BDS). It presents an idea of making up an air defense observation and surveillance system composed of observation subsystem, air information identification subsystem, information processing subsystem, information transmission subsystem, and command and control subsystem in order to enhance ADF-integrated reconnaissance and early-warning capability in joint-operation conditions.
