Abstract : The Aircraft Reply and Interference Environment Simulator (ARIES) makes possible the performance assessment of the Mode Select (Mode S) sensor under its specific maximum aircraft load. To do this, ARIES operates upon disk files for traffic model and interference to generate simulated aircraft replies and fruit, feeding them to the sensor at radio frequency. Support documentation for ARIES consists of: ARIES Hardware Maintenance Manual: Volume I(DOT/FAA/CT- TN88/3); Appendixes of the Hardware Maintenance Manual: Volume II; ARIES hardware Principles of Operation: Volume I (DOT/FAA/CT-TN88/4-I); Appendixes of the Hardware Principles of Operation: Volume II; ARIES Software Principles of Operation (DOT/FAA/CT-TN87/16); ARIES Software User's Manual (DOT/FAA/CT-TN88/ 15). This document, the ARIES Hardware Principles of Operation, Volume I, explains the theory of operation of the ARIES special purpose hardware designed and fabricated at the Federal Aviation Administration Technical Center. Each hardware device is discussed. Functional block diagrams, signal timing diagrams, and state timing diagrams are included where appropriate. Keywords: Stand alone target simulation; Radar beacons.
