The Discrete Address Beacon System DABS will provide the primary Air Traffic Control ATC surveillance information for the 1980-1990 time period as it is introduced gradually as a replacement for the present Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System ATCRBS. This report discusses and summarizes the results of two DABS antenna system design-cost trade off studies performed by industrial concerns with substantial design, fabrication and field maintenance experience related to similar antenna systems now in the field. The data from these studies, was to be used to support other Lincoln Laboratory DABS studies leading to the definition and specification of a cost-effective system design.
