Abstract:

On 10th and 11th January 1989, dedicated flights of the RAE BAC 1-11 were scheduled to assess the coverage of the aircrafts Mode S aerials. The intention was to fly carefully controlled patterns using different aerial connections during different sections of the flights. It was realized that this trial also afforded an ideal first opportunity to test many aspects of the Mode S data link, following the brief initial test of the GICB protocol during a flight of opportunity on 23rd Sep 1988. The VHF emulation, which had already been tested on several occasions since April 1987, would also be used to down- link aircraft derived data. This report is concerned only with data link aspects of the trials the surveillance results will be reported elsewhere. Keywords Great Britain. fr
