ERA (a member of OMNIPOL group) is a leading company in multilateration, multistatic surveillance, and reconnaissance technology. Unrivalled experience in passive surveillance sensor development provides ERA with unique know-how to deliver comprehensive solutions for global markets. We develop, manufacture and implement mission-critical systems for military and civil purposes.

Over the last two decades ERA has reached more than 100 installations, deployed in over 62 countries on five continents with 24/7 operations fulfilling demanding customer requirements. Nevertheless, more important than the number of references is the experience that we have achieved and the lessons we have learned during implementation of our solutions for air traffic control and management.

ERA has developed a unique passive surveillance system VERA-NG that defines the new sensor category DPET (Deployable Passive ESM Tracker) tailored for air, maritime and land target surveillance and reconnaissance for defence and electronic warfare purposes.

In parallel, ERA made air traffic control history when deploying the first multilateration system and introducing gate-to-gate surveillance. We intend to continue introducing new technologies to adapt to today´s and tomorrow´s challenges.

ERA portfolio of products and services

NEO – the flexible, mature, certified multisensor and multisolution surveillance system with proven multilateration and ADS-B capability is proven to provide accurate and reliable real-time location and identification of all objects equipped with a Mode A/C/S transponder. The generic ERA multi-sensor surveillance architecture can be readily configured to optimise performance for specific applications including surface movement, wide area multilateration, parallel runway monitoring and height monitoring as well as ADS-B-based surveillance. NEO is capable of performing all or selected described functions simultaneously and seamlessly.

SQUID – the most widespread self-contained transmitting vehicle unit for improving airport safety by broadcasting the position of ground vehicles (ADS-B squitter using GNSS). SQUID Units complement and support NEO to identify and track any non-transponder equipped targets. Vehicle Tracking System in the airport environment prevents an incursion situation between the aircraft and the vehicle (follow-me cars, pushback tugs, the service cars allowed for the RWY check etc.).

VERA-NG – the unique and proven world leading Passive ESM (Electronic Support Measure) Tracker. Vera-NG addresses critical elements in today’s military and security operations by providing the most advanced and state-of-the-art Passive Surveillance System designed for detection, location, identification and tracking of air, ground and naval targets. Vera-NG uses advanced techniques to conduct cross-border long-term and long-range surveillance without alerting neighbouring nations. It effectively "sees without being seen".

ERIS – the alternative ATM and ATC system for medium-sized airports. The system represents a cost effective alternative for regional airports and is designed to support command and control of air forces at all operational and tactical levels. ERIS is also designed for air traffic control and flight planning of civil and military operations. ERIS in conjunction with ERA´s NEO multi-sensor surveillance system represent a comprehensive solution for ATC controllers and air defence commanders. ERIS’s modular architecture and scalability enable individual and optimal site-specific tailoring and easy integration into various ATC environments. The use cases of ERIS range from a solution on ACC or APP levels to a Common Ground Surveillance System (CGSS) for medium-sized and regional airports.

IXO SYSTEM – the complex solution for airspace users and providers who look for a product that seamlessly integrates information on manned and unmanned aircraft operations and provides real-time aeronautical information for all airspace users.

Record&Replay&InvestigatoR – the open and modular solution based on common HW and designed for filing, long-term storage and replay of audio, video & data recordings.

MasterCare – a complete portfolio of services and a comprehensive range of assurance offerings that can be customised for each customer, deployment site and service level requirements. MasterCare programmes maintain safety for ERA partners with the following processes: obsolescence management, spares stock management, repair management, a tailored training programme and on-site inspections and preventive maintenance.
