Abstract : A feasibility model TACAN test signal set and a feasibility model DME test signal set was designed, developed, and constructed. Each test set is designed for making ground checks of their respective airborne interrogator units in current use by the commercial airlines, the military, and the general aviation public. The prime objectives in this program were performance, maintainability, and reliability. In order to meet these objectives, such things as integrated circuits, modular construction, self-test, and new design concepts were utilized. (Author)
