Abstract : An investigation of the means of increasing the traffic handling capacity of VORTAC, including low interrogation rate, ability of the interrogator to work with lower reply efficiency and a higher maximum reply rate for the transponders; the increase being proportional to demand. An alternative method based on compatible time-frequency techniques with periodic update of an airborne clock should be investigated. (Author)
