Abstract : A portable receiving, conditioning, and recording system to evaluate the performance of common system enroute and terminal aids to navigation is described. The receiving equipment and signal conditioning are conventional, as is the presentation of displayed and recorded information. Features to facilitate recorder trace identification and to normalize and ease the operating specialist's workload have been included. The Flight Check Console consists of a single channel self-contained airborne navigation system capable of receiving signals from VOR, TACAN, LOCALIZER, GLIDE SLOPE and MARKER BEACON stations in the various assigned frequency bands. It also provides self-contained VHF Communications and such signal conditioning, recording, control, and display features as to allow the analysis of transmitted signals for the purpose of determining Navaid facility performance.
