RESULTS OF AN ACTIVE BEACON COLLISION AVOIDANCE EXPERIMENT CONDUCTED IN THE LOS ANGELES AIRSPACE

The Active BCAS test bed equipment, which had been tested both at NAFEC and at Washington, D.C., was upgraded to include the Whisper-Shout technique for garble reduction and the DABS mode for high integrity BCAS-to-BCAS operation. The test bed was then flown in the environment of the Los Angeles TCA and of the Orange County Airport. A comparison was then made under various levels of traffic, and with various system features. As a result of all of the tests on the feasibility equipment, general performance results are predicted and improvements for future designs are given. (Author)
