Abstract:

This report describes the MIT Lincoln Laboratory Transportable Measurements Facility TMF, a special purpose beacon interrogator patterned after the Discrete Address Beacon Sensor. This van-mounted experimental beacon system includes all ATCRBSDABS reply processing and monopulse processing, but not other DABS processing. It was developed to collect data at various locations in the United States so that candidate DABS sensor antenna and processing could be evaluated in a real environment. The TMF has been installed and operated at Logan Airport Boston Deer Island, MA near Logan Washington National Airport DCA Philadelphia Int. Airport PHL Clementon, NJ near Philadelphia Los Angeles Int. Airport LAX Brea, CA25 miles east of LAX Salt Lake City, UT SLC Layton, UT near Salt Lake City Las Vegas Airport LAS Green Airport, Warwick, RI. Author
