The impact of ten proposed signal formats of the Discrete Address Beacon System DABS on the performance of TACANDME equipments was investigated. The susceptibility of the individual TACANDME equipments to interference was then used to assess the interference impact of a hypothetical DABS environment on the operation of TACANDME systems. Worst case characterizations were used in some respects. A set of frequency-distance separations was developed that would prevent DABS interference to the TACAN interrogator, and limit the generation of deadtime in the TACAN beacon.
