Abstract:

A theoretical analysis and computer simulation were undertaken to develop a DABSATCRBS scheduling algorithm which would be capable of servicing the projected 1995 Los Angeles Basin 1608 aircraft aloft. A satisfactory technique was found using sub-epoch timing, partitioning between packed and synchro calls, and time-sharing a separate interval for each sites synchro calla. The technique also provides garble-free Synchro DABS air-to-air CAS service in the multi-site DABSATCRBS environment. Time is provided during the packed call interval for extended length messages and target reinterrogation.
