CONCEPT. FOR A SATELLITE-BASED ADVANCED AIR TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. VOLUME III. SUBSYSTEM FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

The volume presents a detailed description of the subsystems that comprise the Satellite-Based Advanced Air Traffic Management System. Described in detail are the surveillance, navigation, communications, data processing, and airport subsystems. The electronics required to implement each subsystem is also presented. The subsystem descriptions include a detailed description of the subsystem mechanization, the rationale for its selection, and the expected performance of each subsystem. The electronics are presented in block diagram form. Particular emphasis is placed on the integrated avionic hardware associated with each subsystem mechanization. Included in the mechanization description of each subsystem are the basic analyses, algorithms, and equations that were used to implement the subsystem. The details of the analyses and assumptions underlying the data presented in this volume can be found in Volume IX of the report.
