IMPLEMENTATION OF THE DISCRETE ADDRESS BEACON SYSTEM (DABS) SENSOR

To alleviate many of the problems encountered by existing Air Traffic Control Radar Beacons (ATCRBS), an interoperable discrete-address beacon system concept is under development. A summary is presented of the basic function of the DABS equipment, the principal functional requirements for the major subsystems, and implementation approaches. Particular emphasis is placed on the modular, distributed computer system and its associated software.
