AN ADVANCED AIR TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CONCEPT BASED ON EXTENSIONS OF THE UPGRADED THIRD GENERATION ATC SYSTEM. SYSTEM B: DISCRETE ADDRESS BEACON SYSTEM (DABS) ACCURACY AND COVERAGE REQUIREMENTS
The report develops the DABS system configuration for the Advanced Air Traffic Management System (AATMS), System B, and evaluates the coverage provided by the resulting 291 DABS sites. More than 90% of the CONUS is found to be covered down to 3,000' AGL under a four-thirds earth assumption. The report also develops the IFR spacing standards and the navigation and surveillance requirements sufficient for AATMS, System B, to handle the projected 1995 nominal demand load. Two worst cases have been chosen, the New York to Chicago corridor for the en route case, and the Los Angeles Basin for the terminal case.
