Abstract : The patent describes a unique system that uses modified TACAN equipment and additional circuitry to allow the TACAN signal to be efficiently used for ground tracking and display of TACAN equipped aircraft on a typical ground radar P.P.I. or other type of display. This is accomplished without the use of a radar transmitter-receiver.
