Wind turbines are known to interfere with radar systems, including Air Traffic Control (ATC) radar. Despite this being a known issue, relatively few quantitative studies have been performed which analyze the performance of ATC radar systems impacted by wind farms. For this study, an Apache helicopter flew two sets of varied flight paths above two wind farm in proximity to a Raytheon ASR-11 ATC radar. The first of these tests occurred in July under moderate wind conditions. The second occurred… CONTINUE READING
