MEASUREMENT OF THE ATCRBS SURFACE INTERROGATION ENVIRONMENTS AT CHICAGO O'HARE AND LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS

The Transportation Systems Center is conducting a program to develop a surface surveillance sensor that uses replies from ATCRBS transponders. The operation of this system can be affected by surface interrogations at major airports where such a system might eventually be deployed. Consequently, tests were conducted at Chicago O'Hare and Los Angeles International Airports to measure the surface interrogation environment and to determine the number of interrogators causing surface transponders to reply. This report describes the tests that were performed, presents the analysis of collected data, and offers conclusions pertinent to future operational ASTC systems.
