SYSTEMS AND ENVIRONMENTAL EMC CONTROL PROGRAM FOR THE AIRTRANS AUTOMATED GROUND TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM

This paper describes the EMC program implemented for the AIRTRANS ground transportation system installed at the Dallas-Fort Worth Regional Airport. A review of the EMI techniques applied at the equipment level for the automatic control, propulsion control and surveillance system is provided. A presentation is made concerning derivation of the limits for radiated and conducted emissions from the vehicles; limits which can be reasonably applied to commercial systems yet provide the necessary control to insure the system is operationally compatible and free from mutual interference. The system will operate without interference to adjacent aeronautical, safety and special, and broadcast radio services. Measurement data are provided showing the radiated and conducted emission characteristics of a vehicle operating on-site. These measurements, compared against the limits established for the system, show that the required conditions of electromagnetic compatibility have been achieved.
