Abstract:

A five-part kit was designed and developed for field modifying Airport Surveillance Radar ASR-4 indicator subsystems. The kits are designed to provide phased implementation of 1 bright display of radar video, 2 display of a slew dot and generation of beacon readout trigger, 3 display of asynchronous beacon or radar video, 4 display of computer-derived alpha-numeric and symbolic data, and 5 generation of digital message formats for transfer of data to a display computer. These modifications were incorporated into a two-console display subsystem which was successfully tested and installed as a part of the Advanced Radar Traffic Control System ARTS at the Atlanta Terminal Area Tower, Atlanta, Georgia.
