The document is a system specification for the Augmented Radar Beacon Tracking Level (RBTL) system. The Augmented RBTL expands the Beacon Tracking Level (BTL) ARTS III system by providing the capability of automatically tracking and displaying information on both non-beacon and beacon-equipped aircraft. In addition, this system provides improved tracking techniques together with new techniques for improving the controller-computer interface. The Augmented RBTL system expands the ARTS III system, but retains the ARTS III features. Primary radar processing is accomplished through the addition of an Radar processing is Acquisition Subsystem (RDAS) together with radar processing software. The RDAS accepts basic timing the radar video information from a search radar. It provides quantized video hits to the ARTS computer (IOP) in the form of 30 bit words. The computer uses these hits to perform radar target detection land position estimation.
