THE SUSCEPTIBILITY OF REPRESENTATIVE TACAN AND DME EQUIPMENTS TO A PROPOSED, MLS L-BAND PRECISION DME SIGNAL FORMAT

Measured data are presented that show the susceptibility of representative Tactical Air Navigation/Distance Measurement Equipments (TACAN/DME) to the proposed, Microwave Landing System (MLS) L-Band Precision DME (PDME) signal format. The interrogator data are examined to determine the most susceptible equipments, and the desired and undesired signal relationships that permit range and azimuth acquisition. Comments are made on the transponder data. (Author)
