DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUTOMATED REMOTE COMMUNICATIONS AIR-GROUND (RCAG) MONITORING SYSTEM

A monitoring System for remote communication air-ground (RCAG) facility equipment was developed, including the design and fabrication of an engineering model. Sensor techniques for the transmitters and receivers were investigated. The design made use of a microprocessor with associated hardware and software to 'continuously monitor' critical parameters. Certification data and/or alarms were reported via a terminal. It is concluded that production of automated monitoring equipment for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) air/ground communication facilities with the specific sensor techniques, processing, and control used in this experimentation is feasible.
