DABS CHANNEL MANAGEMENT
The report provides a full discussion of the design of the DABS channel management function. Channel management regulates all activity on the RF channel, scheduling ATCRBS interrogations and DABS roll-call interrogations and replies. Channel management arranges for multiple interrogations when required to satisfy both the surveillance and the communications functions of the sensor, and for reinterrogations in the event of link failure. The report consists of three major parts: Part I, Channel Control; Part II, Roll-Call Scheduling; and Part III, Transaction Preparation, Target List Update, and Transaction Update. Together they encompass the five basic subfunctions of channel management.
