POTENTIAL INTERFERENCE OF THE DISCRETE ADDRESS BEACON SYSTEM (DABS) ON THE X AND Y MODE TACAN SYSTEM

The impact of ten proposed signal formats of the Discrete Address Beacon System (DABS) on the performance of TACAN/DME equipments was investigated. The susceptibility of the individual TACAN/DME equipments to interference was then used to assess the interference impact of a hypothetical DABS environment on the operation of TACAN/DME systems. Worst case characterizations were used in some respects. A set of frequency-distance separations was developed that would prevent DABS interference to the TACAN interrogator, and limit the generation of deadtime in the TACAN beacon.
