Abstract : The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Fixed Ground Antenna Radome (FCAR) Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) Integration and Operational Test Plan is prepared by the Associate Program Manager for Test (APMT). It defines the overall planning, test activities, and coordination associated with OT&E Integration and Operational testing required to ensure the project meets the requirements of the project specification and the system and subsystem requirements allocated to the project. The purpose of the FCAR project is to provide new, larger radomes for en route surveillance radars that require collocated Mode Select Beacon System (Mode S) installations. As a result of the FAA's program to implement Mode S, many existing en route surveillance radar radomes cannot accommodate the additional space required by the new Mode S antennas. The FGARs will provide an environmental enclosure for a variety of single or dual-face monopulse beacon phased array and en route surveillance radar installations. Installations will be comprised of an installation mix ranging from beacon-only-sites (BOS) to collocated beacon and en route surveillance radar sites. (MM)
