LCGS: Low Cost Ground Surveillance

Low Cost Ground Surveillance (LCGS) project provides basic ground traffic surveillance capability to enhance safety at small and medium airports where cost effective deployment of Airport Surface Detection Equipment Model X (ASDE-X) technology is not possible. The LCGS will serve in an advisory capacity providing the air traffic controller with surface surveillance information to reduce the risk of ground traffic incidents, incursions, or accidents.
