DESIGN, FABRICATION, AND TESTING OF A BRASSBOARD MODEL ATCRBS BASED SURFACE TRILATERATION DATA ACQUISITION SUBSYSTEM

Field test results are emphasized in this report, which also contains background information on Airport Surface Traffic Control (ASTC) and the contract objectives. The National Aviation Facilities Experiimental Center (NAFEC) field test series conclusively proved the technical feasibility of an Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System (ATCRBS) based Airport Surface Traffic Control sensor system. Operational Data Acquisition Subsystem (DAS) performance projections developed to date as a result of the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center test series are presented, and a recommendation for pursuit of Contract Option 2 is substantiated.
