Abstract:

This document provides reference material for personnel using the Data Link Test and Analysis System DATAS for hardware diagnostic testing. Included in this document is a brief overall description of the DATAS, and a thorough description of how to operate the hardware diagnostic tests. The DATAS was originally conceived at the Federal Aviation Administration Technical Center by members of the Data Link project whose responsibilities include verification of Data Link systems reliability, interface protocols and system capacities. The DATAS was designed and fabricated at the FAA Technical Center to provide such test and analysis capabilities. DATAS is capable of testing all components of the Data Link system. These components include ATCRBS and Mode S transponders, avionics Data Link processors ADLP, and all Data Link system interfaces. It will also provide the capability of Mode S simulation and 1030 and 1090 megahertz MHz radio frequency RF environment analysis for all beacon transmissions including Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance Systems TCAS. The DATAS has the capability of RF signal analysis within the frequency range of 950 to 1200 MHz. KR
