Abstract:

A TV tape recorder was evaluated to determine its operational value for recording and reproducing scan converted radar information. Although there is some degradation from the original live display, the video tape record, which is not normally available, does enable personnel to reconstruct air traffic situations completely and accurately. The off-the-shelf test recorder can be adapted to fulfill FAA requirements at Air Traffic Control Facilities having radar surveillance which incorporates the use of scan converters. Author
