Abstract:

The Aircraft Reply and Interference Environment Simulator ARIES makes possible the performance assessment of the Mode Select Mode S sensor under its specific maximum aircraft load. To do this, ARIES operates upon disk files for traffic model and interference to generate simulated aircraft replies and fruit, feeding them to the sensor at radio frequency. Support documentation for ARIES consists of ARIES Hardware Maintenance Manual Volume IDOTFAACT- TN883 Appendixes of the Hardware Maintenance Manual Volume II ARIES hardware Principles of Operation Volume I DOTFAACT-TN884-I Appendixes of the Hardware Principles of Operation Volume II ARIES Software Principles of Operation DOTFAACT-TN8716 ARIES Software Users Manual DOTFAACT-TN88 15. This document, the ARIES Hardware Principles of Operation, Volume I, explains the theory of operation of the ARIES special purpose hardware designed and fabricated at the Federal Aviation Administration Technical Center. Each hardware device is discussed. Functional block diagrams, signal timing diagrams, and state timing diagrams are included where appropriate. Keywords Stand alone target simulation Radar beacons.
