The Discrete Address Beacon System (DABS) Calibration Performance Monitor Equipment (CPME) is a special DABS transponder designed for installation at a fixed site visible to one or more DABS beacon sensors. The CPME is required for DABS sensor monopulse accuracy tests and for calibration of the sensor off-boresite azimuth look-up table. In addition, the CPME provides tests for DABS link integrity, by storing an uplink message and parroting it back upon command from the sensor. This document contains all information necessary to obtain a general understanding of the CPME system and its operation. Detailed information necessary for repair of the equipment is not contained in this document, but is supplied with each CPME system. (Author)
