STUDY OF ALTERNATIVE BEACON BASED SURVEILLANCE AND DATA LINK SYSTEMS. VOLUME II

Several beacon-based surveillance systems--both addressed and non-addressed--as well as several data link systems, in appropriate combinations, were analyzed with respect to meeting the future requirements of the Upgraded Third Generation ATC System. These requirements included surveillance characteristics suitable for automatic ground-based collision avoidance (IPC); they also included data mated company digital communication services. The Discrete Address Beacon System (DABS) is shown to be the lowest cost of all alternatives for implementing IPC for the basic general aviation user. (Modified author abstract)
