MINIMUM OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION FOR SURFACE MOVEMENT RADAR SENSOR SYSTEMS FOR USE IN ADVANCED SURFACE MOVEMENT GUIDANCE AND CONTROL SYSTEMS (A-SMGCS)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2004|
PURPOSE AND SCOPE
This EUROCAE Minimum Operational Performance Specification (MOPS) specifies the minimum performance requirements of Surface Movement Radar Sensor Systems for use in Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems (A-SMGCS).
Throughout this document, the term "SMR" will be used to mean a Surface Movement Radar Sensor System, as described in paragraph 1.4.
Chapter 1 provides information required to understand the need for the SMR characteristics and tests defined in the remaining chapters. It describes typical SMR applications and operational objectives and, along with EUROCAE ED-87A, Minimum Aviation System Performance Specifications for A-SMGCS, forms the basis for the performance criteria stated in Chapters 2 and 3. Definitions and abbreviations essential to the proper understanding of this document are also provided in Chapter 1.
Chapter 2 contains general design requirements for an SMR for use during surface movement operations at an airport, including health and safety and environmental aspects.
Chapter 3 contains the Minimum Operational Performance Requirements for the SMR, defining performance under weather conditions likely to be encountered during surface movement operations.
Chapter 4 identifies laboratory means of testing performance characteristics of the SMR under environmental conditions representative of those that may be encountered in actual operations.
Chapter 5 describes recommended test procedures for demonstrating compliance with the requirements of Chapters 2 and 3 in the factory or laboratory.
Chapter 6 describes recommended test procedures for demonstrating compliance with the requirements of Chapters 2 and 3 for the installed SM
