Abstract : This document defines the Fixed Ground Antenna Radome (FGAR) integration and and operational test procedures that will be performed at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Technical Center's En Route Beacon Test Facility (ERBTF) and field operational facilities. These test procedures will be performed following the Contractor's Acceptance Inspection (CAI). The test configurations and their associated interfaces will be required to operate in as near an operational environment as possible. The testing includes the use of a specially equipped Radio Frequency Interference Monitoring (RFIM) van to measure primary and secondary radar electromagnetic performance parameters and the En Route Mode Select Beacon System (Mode S) installed at the Technical Center's Elwood ERBTF. In addition, the FGAR operational characteristics will be evaluated from a user's standpoint.
