PURPOSE AND SCOPE

This Technical Specification document specifies the minimum performance requirements for a Wide Area Multilateration (WAM) System that is part of a system providing airspace situational awareness to air traffic controllers and other users within the European Air Navigation Region.

In the frame of this document the WAM system is primarily intended for ATM in the ECAC area to provide, in both high and low density environments, the following air traffic surveillance services:

• 3 NM horizontal separation

• 5 NM horizontal separation

A WAM System compliant with this Technical Specification will be compatible with all relevant ICAO, EUROCONTROL and EUROCAE/RTCA specifications [REF1 - REF16].

It is recognised that a WAM system may also provide an ADS-B data reception and handling capability, but consideration of such capability is outside the scope of this document. More information on ADS-B ground station capability can be found in [REF16].

A list of document references can be found in section 1.7.
