The Discrete Address Beacon System (DABS) will provide the basis for the automation of many air traffic control system functions envisioned in the near future, most notable amongst these being the Automatic Traffic Advisory and Resolution Service (ATARS). This document describes a set of services that may reasonably be expected to be provided by DABS in its first ten years of deployment. It establishes approximate capacity requirement placed on the DABS sensor and upper limits on the total amount of radio signals transmitted by the sensor in order to provide these services. The analysis is based on DABS and ATARS system definitions known as of July 1979. A final report, identifying exact DABS capacity requirements for providing these services, will be published at a later date. (Author)
