ICAO 8071 VOL III
Manual on Testing of Radio Navigation Aids Volume III — Testing of Surveillance Radar Systems
|Publication Date:||1 January 2020|
Scope of the document
This document describes methods for the evaluation and testing of the technical and operational performance of surveillance sensor systems. Automatic monitoring and testing of modern equipment by means of built-in test equipment (BITE) has greatly reduced the need for extensive ground testing and allows economies to be made in this activity. The periodical check and maintenance actions necessary (and their frequency) for the good functioning of the radar system are very equipment and system specific. The schedule for such actions will not form part of this document and the surveillance system user is referred to the maintenance manuals and related recommendations provided by the surveillance system manufacturers.
