A program is developed for simulating operation of a single TACANDME beacon with various numbers of TACANDME aircraft interrogators. Beacon performance is predicted. Interference from a deployment of airborne DABS aircraft is superimposed upon the TACANDME beacon to determine the interference effect. TACANDME interrogator performance as a function of beacon performance is also predicted. Simulation results are presented in terms of probability of beacon reply, probability of interrogator acquire lock, expected time for interrogator acquire lock, beacon dead time generated by dabs signals, and number of TACAN replies generated by the beacon in response to DABS signals.
