Abstract:

This document reports the findings of the performance tests conducted on the terminal configuration of the Node S Beacon System. The tests were conducted at the FAA Technical Center using the first article system from the Node S production contract. The Node S system under test was a fully configured dual channel system having all required external interfaces connected to actual NAS equipment. A combination of live aircraft and simulated targets were used in the test conduct and data collection. The tests were conducted in accordance with the Node S Naster Test Plan DoTIFAACT-88128 and the Node S Performance Test Plan DOTIFAACT-Th 90124. The test goals are to characterize the performance of the Node S system in key areas and to establish a baseline from which to evaluate future changes.
