Abstract:

The airborne time system, radar display system, and modification to automatic monitoring and data processing systems AMDPS were designed, fabricated, installed, and checked out. The airborne time system is an extension of the time signal set ANUSQ-23V. The system extended the range of the time signal set from 2 miles to 200 miles. The time signal is prepared for transmission over a standard radio link. The signal is received in aircraft and the time code is then decoded for visual display and magnetic tape recording. Physical requirements of the Units were dependent upon aircraft environment. The radar data display system is used to distribute MSQ-1A and MOD-III radar range and azimuth information at several remote locations. The information is transmitted over an audio land line. The transmission method is serial on-off tone burst. The range and azimuth information is demodulated and stored for visual display at each remote site. A decimal readout is accomplished with nixie indicator tubes. The automatic monitoring and data processing equipment data recorder modification consisted of increasing the recording capability of the data recorder by better utilizing the total available recording time. In addition to increasing the recording capability, the recording cycle was altered to operate on a straight time basis and also on a per radar scan basis. This feature enabled the recording cycle to be in synchronism with the radar set associated with the data recorder. Reliability and maintainability is presented.
