Abstract:

The air traffic control radar beacon system ATCRBS electronic scan antenna ESA as designed and built consists of 56 array modules placed on a platform ring constructed around the top of an airport surveillance radar tower. A shelter beneath the tower provides an enclosure for the control and radiofrequency distribution system of the ESA. The report covers the preparatory testing to determine the readiness of the terminal radarbeacon test facility TRBTF at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center to accept the ESA and provides a data base for comparison during the test program. In addition, the installation phase of the test and evaluation of the ATCRBS ESA is discussed in the report.
