MEASUREMENT AND ANALYSES OF ASR-4 SYSTEM ERROR. PART III. SUMMARY

The positional accuracy of aircraft radar targets displayed in an air traffic control airport surveillance radar system (ASR-4) was measured as one of the inputs essential for determining aircraft separation standards. In the report, Part III: Summary, data have been pooled for all like system response measures from two extensive data sets previously reported out as Phase I Data and Phase II Data (reflecting a difference in measurement instrumentation) in the associated report, Part II: Analyses, and an analysis of variance was then performed for the pooled expressions. In general, the pooled data show a tendency to be more homogeneous and less subject to extraneous effects.
