TERMINAL RADAR INTERFERENCE CRITERIA STUDY

Tests were undertaken to investigate the relationship between pulsed-type interference and the air traffic controller working in the terminal area. This was done by recording a series of pulsed-type interference cases and combining them with simulated analog radar targets to form a set of scenarios for display to a group of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) controllers. Several operational responses were used as performance measures to investigate interference criteria. The interference cases were then quantified and ordered based on two indexing schemes. Tests based on the indices and the performance measures revealed that correlations exist between the operational responses and the interference cases. (Author)
