Abstract : A five-part kit was designed and developed for field modifying Airport Surveillance Radar ASR-4 indicator subsystems. The kits are designed to provide phased implementation of (1) bright display of radar video, (2) display of a slew dot and generation of beacon readout trigger, (3) display of asynchronous beacon or radar video, (4) display of computer-derived alpha-numeric and symbolic data, and (5) generation of digital message formats for transfer of data to a display computer. These modifications were incorporated into a two-console display subsystem which was successfully tested and installed as a part of the Advanced Radar Traffic Control System (ARTS) at the Atlanta Terminal Area Tower, Atlanta, Georgia.
