What does ATCRBS mean or stand for ?
The ATCRBS is a type of radio surveillance device that constantly scans the area around the airport and keeps tabs on the altitudes of incoming and also those aircraft that have just finished taxiing and have lifted off.The main reason is that around the airport the traffic density is very high and there are more chances of collisions between two aircraft.Therefore the ATCRBS assists the ATC staff in laying correct altitudes for the planes so as to avoid any accidents.
