Abstract:

This traffic control and landing systems TRACALS special evaluation report presents data collected to define the capabilities and limitations of the ANTPX-42AV Type 3 Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System ATCRBS at Clark Air Base, Republic of the Philippines. The ANTPX-42A is part of the radar approach control RAPCON facility and was installed in December 1974 to replace the ANGPX-9B ATCRBS. This report supplements and updates the Clark AB Radar Station Evaluation Report 7367R-3012 and where data is unchanged refers to that report. The evaluation was started on 14 August 75, but, due to equipment problems from 19 August to 12 September, was not completed until 26 September 75. The evaluation assessed Interrogator output power and receiver gain, gain time control GTC, false targets, and overall system and subsystems operation. The data presented in this report can be used as a guide for anticipated performance until there is a change of equipment or a change occurs in the screening profile. Author
