MEASUREMENT AND ANALYSES OF ASR-4 SYSTEM ERROR. PART I. OVERVIEW
The positional accuracy of aircraft radar targets as displayed in an air traffic control airport surveillance radar system (ASR-4) was sought as one of the inputs essential for determining aircraft separation standards. Using radar track input from the Atlantic City, New Jersey, ASR-4, the radar targets of two test aircraft executing flight patterns of varying relative spacing were photographed as displayed in both beacon and primary radar modes on scan-converted and PPI displays. The displayed positions were related to simultaneous precision track from single-target instrumentation radars (EAIR and TAIR) to derive error measures for range, azimuth, and separation. The extensive analysis program employed a 'least-squares' analysis of variance.
