Abstract:

An engineering model of the TACAN soli state keyer was fabricated for Tacan and similar navi gational aid equipments. The engineering model was to incorporate changes necessary to assure operation of the keyre, within specified tolerances, over the range of -40 degrees Centrigrade to 80 degrees Centigrade. The code character timing requirement was changed to 0.1 second for the dot, 0.3 seconds for the dash, 0.1 second for the space between dots and dashes, and 0.3 seconds for the space between consecutive characters of a code group. The engineering model of the solid state electronic keyer is compatible with existing equipments and has definite advantages in reliability, coded-output setup procedure, flexibility with respect to application in future equipments, and potential size reduction. Maintenance is considerably reduced since periodic servicing and adjustment is not required. Author
