Abstract : The report presents an engineering analysis of the feasibility of modifying the existing TACAN/DME system to provide broadcast digital data for area navigation. The operational and system considerations indicate that the required data rate is realizable and can be added with minimal effect on existing services. Various types of signal structure, synchronization and modulation techniques are examined. A comparison of the resulting data systems on the basis of data performance, flexibility, and the cost-complexity of implementation is included. (Author)
