Abstract:

The Airport Surface Detection Equipment ASDE is a primary radar and display system used to provide the airport surface traffic situation to the air traffic controller. An ASDE-3 engineering model is being procured by the Transportation Systems Center TSC for testing at NAFEC. The product of this development will be a complete and comprehensive technical data package presented to the Airways Facilities Service AAF for procurement of production ASDE-3 units. The purpose of this Project Plan is to describe the program for development, test, evaluation, maintenance, and configuration control of the ASDE-3 engineering model, and to delineate the responsibilities of each of the participating organizations.
