Abstract:

The Federal Aviation Administration FAA Traffic Information Service TIS Developmental Test and Evaluation DTE and Operational Test and Evaluation OTE Final Test Report is prepared by the Mode Select Mode S Test Group of the Surveillance Branch ACT-310. It provides the detailed analysis, results, the final conclusions, and recommendations drawn from the DTE and OTE of the TIS data link service for the Mode S Beacon Radar System. The purpose of the TIS data link function is intended to improve the safety and efficiency of see-and-avoid flight by providing automatic display to the pilot of nearby traffic and warnings of any potentially threatening conditions. The source of TIS information is the file of aircraft tracks maintained by the ground Mode S sensor providing coverage for a region of airspace.
