Abstract:

The program to accomplish the Development Test and Evaluation DT and E of the Discrete Address Beacon System DABS is defined. The goals of the DABS DT and E Program are to establish the DABS performance characteristics, determine the compatibility of DABS with the Air Traffic Control ATC system, and demonstrate the ATC performance improvements made possible by DABS. In addition, an evaluation of the Automatic Traffic Advisory and Resolution Service ATARS and the use of the DABS data link to exchange pilot-ATC information will be performed. The evaluations of the DABS test results will be used to prepare technical data packages for DABS procurement by the Operating Services. The DABS DT and E Program consists of four phases factory acceptance tests, field acceptance tests, performance tests, and DABSATC systems tests. General information is provided on the test requirements associated with each program phase, documentation requirements, organizational responsibilities, and schedules. Author
