Abstract:

The Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System ATCRBS was modified so as to expand the decoding capability at the indicator site of Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon Interrogator ATCBI-3 to 4096 discrete identity codes. An Altitude Code Processor was developed to process transponder replies to Mode C interrogations. Radar Bright Display Equipment RBDE-5 was augmented with Numerics Display Generators. The resulting Beacon Numerics Display System was implemented at Air Route Traffic Control Centers ARTCC at Atlanta, Georgia, and at Indianapolis, Indiana, as a tool for use in evaluating the operational utility of beacon numerics on the RBDE-5 displays.
