Abstract:

The U.S. Department of Transportation DOT, Federal Aviation Administration FAA program for air traffic control ATC experimentation and evaluation with the ATS-6 satellite was part of the Integrated ATS-6 L-Band Experiment. All tests were performed between September 1974 and April 1975. The U.S. DOT aeronautical program consisted of both ATC communications demonstration and technology tests. In support of the aeronautical satellite AEROSAT program, tests were designed to collect satellite-aircraft signal propagation data, evaluate L-band avionics hardware designs, and perform preliminary satellite voice and data communications demonstration tests.
