Abstract : The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) Operational Test Plan for Type V/VI Fixed Ground Antenna Radome (FGAR) is prepared by the Associate Program Manager for Test (APMT). It defines the overall planning, test activities, and coordination associated with OT&E Operational testing required to ensure the project meets the requirements of the specification, and the system and subsystem requirements allocated to the project. The purpose of the FGAR project is to provide new, larger radomes for en route surveillance radars and for Beacon Only Sites (BOS) that require Mode Select Beacon System (Mode S) installations. The FGARs will provide an environmental enclosure for a variety of single or dual-faced monopulse beacon phased array and en route surveillance radar antennas. The Type V/VI FGAR is specially designed to be mounted on an Air Route Surveillance Radar (ARSR)-3 antenna tower. The first Type VIVI FGAR will be installed at the Newport, Attala County, Mississippi (MS) ARSR-3 En Route Radar Facility.
