A SUPPLEMENTARY EMC ANALYSIS OF THE PROPOSED AIRPORT SURFACE DETECTION EQUIPMENT (ASDE-3) RADAR

This report supplements information in an earlier report which identified electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) problems associated with the deployment of Airport Surface Detection Equipment (ASDE-3) Radars at a number of proposed sites in the United States. Subsequent to the earlier study, several operational parameters of the ASDE-3 radar have been modified in a direction to lessen the probability of causing or receiving interference, thereby, necessitating a reanalysis of portions of the earlier study. as before, interferring signal levels are compared against established receiver thresholds to determine operational compatibility and frequency management techniques are identified as a solution to potential interference cases, where applicable.
