Abstract:

A computer analysis was conducted to investigate the effect of the proposed Discrete Address Beacon System DABS on the Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System ATCRBS in a future 1982 Los Angeles, CA, air traffic environment. The performance of ATCRBS was examined at two sites, both with a the existing all-ATCRBS ground environment and b a mixed ATCRBSDABS ground environment using various levels of DABS channel activity. It was observed that, in general, DABS operations will not affect the ability of ATCRBS interrogators to perform their air traffic control function of reliably detecting aircraft. Author
