Abstract:

An analysis was performed to predict the effects of the Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System TCAS III on the performance of the Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System ATCRBS in the Los Angeles Basin. This was accomplished by comparing the effects of TCAS III and TCAS II operations on airborne transponder and ground-based ATCRBS interrogator performance in the same hypothetical peak Los Angeles Basin aircraft deployment.
