Norcontrol IT Invests in Radar and Tracking Technology Research

Tuesday, March 23, 2004
Norcontrol IT became the majority shareholder of Norwegian radar technology company, Applied Radar Physics (ARP) in January 2004. The investment demonstrates to the market that Norcontrol IT is prepared to take the lead in the development of radar processing and tracking for VTS applications. ARP has been involved in radar technology for over 15 years, and is located in the Norwegian research center at Kjeller, where several high profile Norwegian research organizations are located. ARP’s standing in international radar research was further acknowledged at the ‘Radar 2003’ conference in Australia, where the company presented a paper on radar signal processing to the world’s foremost radar researchers. Norcontrol IT has delivered several hundred radar trackers since the beginning of the eighties, including around 150 of the latest generation VET5070 trackers and extractors. The high number of tracker deliveries has provided the company with well proven radar tracking algorithms, which form the basis of the high quality product valued by new and existing customers in the VTS market. These competencies will now be further strengthened with the inclusion of ARP. The Canadian Coastguard recently ordered VET5070 tracker to compliment the Norcontrol IT VTS system at Montreal harbor. The Canadian Coastguard has been a valued customer and partner for Norcontrol IT since 1985.
