DISCRETE ADDRESS BEACON SYSTEM DATA LINK CAPACITY REQUIREMENTS

The Federal Aviation Administration plans to deploy the Discrete Address Beacon System (DABS) as a key feature of its upgraded third generation Air Traffic Control System. DABS provides an integral data link capable of conducting rapid transfer of data between the sensor and DABS equipped aircraft. This study establishes the performance requirements of the DABS data link to be able to provide the various services that may reasonably be expected to be delivered by DABS during its life time.
