This report presents the results of a study to determine the reliability of the ATC transponder system in air carrier aircraft and low- performance general aviation aircraft. Data presented on air carrier class of transponders are based on historical records of the air carriers for equipment removal and repair activity. Data presented on the general aviation class of transponders are based on warranty action information furnished by four of the leading avionics manufacturers producing transponders.
