Abstract : The report discusses the development and tests of a 100-watt solid-state VOR Transmitter at National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center (NAFEC). The VOR is a major part of the VORTAC System and provides azimuth guidance to enroute aircraft in the National Airspace System. The transmitting system tested herein is used to generate these signals. Results of the tests discussed in the report provide data for establishment of specifications for the next generation of solid-state VOR transmitting equipment. (Author)
