Abstract:

On the basis of the previously documented Phase I investigation of the ANSPS-57 radar by ARINC Research Corporation, the Coast Guard selected the antennapedestal modifications and repair procedure preparation for accomplishment in the ARINC Research Phase II effort. Phase II, described in this report, consisted of a five-man-month effort during the period February 1976 to February 1977, under Coast Guard Contract DOT-CG-52488-A. The Phase I effort identified potential corrective actions requiring further specific assessment and refinement prior to application as Coast Guard field changes. In Phase II, ARINC Research considered each of six specific antenna modifications, prepared appropriate modification kit items for Coast Guard use in implementing the changes, modified and laboratory tested a prototype Antenna Unit, and monitored the field installation and limited operational test of two prototype kits. As part of the preparation of the modification kit information, repair procedures were prepared to standardize the antenna repair process. This report includes all data necessary for Coast Guard preparation of an Electronic Field Change Bulletin and a Type I Field Change Kit. Drawings for modification items that are not standard commerical items or are not part of the Coast Guard supply stock were submitted separately. Reduced size reproductions of the drawings are provided in the Attachment to this report. Author
