HIGH SPEED DIGITAL TRANSMISSION, THE KEY FOR A SIMPLE AEROSAT AIRBORNE EQUIPMENT

A system is described which was sponsored by the French Administration. Critical elements have been tested during several ATS/6 experiment campaigns. One of the features of the proposed system is its flexibility which can be achieved by the use of digital transmission. The basis of the proposed system consists of using, in the ground to air direction, time division multiplex, mixing a communication channel and its associated supervisory channel. For an air traffic control area, such a multiplex is transmitted continuously. This configuration does not exclude some additional channels exclusively for communication. In the air to ground direction the system uses digital transmission but separate channels for each function.
