The purpose of this document is to describe the Transponder Performance Analyzer (TPA) used for measurement of aircraft beacon transponder performance characteristics. The system was developed at NAFEC utilizing both 'in-house' designed and commercially available equipment. The system is fully self-supporting, is housed in a mobile bus, and has been used for ramp testing of transponders operating in general aviation aircraft and for bench testing of 'off-the shelf' units.
