Abstract:

Potential electromagnetic interference between the Collision Avoidance System CAS and both existing and future systems is addressed in the report. Frequency bands analyzed for the existing systems are the CAS RF band 1592.5 to 1622.5 MHz, and sub-harmonic and harmonically related frequency bands. Future systems considered are those that may operate in the 1535 to 1660 MHz frequency band. Equipments that operate in these frequency bands include television, tropospheric scatter and point-to-point communications, radar altimeters, and satellite relays. World-wide deployment of CAS is assumed for this analysis. Therefore, all frequency usage and allocation information available in the ECAC data files is considered.
