A computer model of the proposed active Beacon Collision Avoidance System BCAS was developed to investigate the impact of BCAS on the Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System ATCRBS ground system. Predictions were made for the early 1981 Washington, D.C., environment. Two ground environments were simulated, an all-ATCRBS environment and a 2575 Discrete Address Beacon System DABSATCRBS mix. Airborne fruit rates and the effect of BCASDABS mode power programming on interference were also predicted. Author
