The UK's newest radar station went live last week, in Burrington, Devon completing the first stage of National Air Traffic Services' (NATS) £127 million ($221 million) programme to replace its entire UK radar network by 2012. Over the proceeding nine years, 19 other radar installations covering the UK will be replaced to provide a "higher standard of information, greater reliability, and a platform for future collaborative developments. They will also be compatible with future datalinking developments when they enter service later in the decade," says NATS.
