Mode S Accessory Unit
The S-1403DL/MLD provides a complete test solution for Mode S and Mode S “Datalink” capable
transponders
•
Easy to operate
Operation
•
Control via IEEE.488 GPIB v13 or
ATC-1400A
•
Support for MTL, COMM C and COMM D
•
User defined screens for user specific
tests
•
Two-year limited warranty
The S-1403DL/MLD Mode S accessory unit supports the new
Mode S Data Link and ADS-B (extended DF17 squitter). The “DL”
is backward compatible with the “C” model. Current ATE programs
implemented on the S-1403C will operate with the S-1403DL/MLD
without program changes. The unit provides additional pulse code
modulation, as specified by RTCA/DO-181 to the ATC-1400A for
testing ATCRBS and Mode S transponders including Data Link,
ADS-B and MLD (Multi Level Diversity) requirements. The
S-1403DL/MLD may also be used as a stand-alone unit to perform
limited Mode S tests.
Aeroflex is a leader in the design, manufacture
and marketing of Avionics test systems.
The S-1403DL/MLD Mode S accessory unit is
designed to interface with the ATC-1400A
Transponder/DME Test Set. The
S-1403DL/MLD/ATC-1400A (Mode S Test
System) simulates an ATCRBS/Mode S equipped
Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR) ground station. The Mode S Test System provides pulse
and Differrential Phase Shift Keying (DPSK)
modulated signals for testing Air Traffic Control
Radar Beacon Systems (ATCRBS) and Mode
Select (Mode S) transponders.
Interconnect
The S-1403DL/MLD may be hard mounted to the ATC-1400A
using supplied hardware. Electrical interface to the ATC-1400A is
via the Aeroflex and AUX buses using two 25-way interconnect
cables and three SMB-to-SMB coaxial cables. Line power is
switched through the S-1403DL/MLD for synchronized power-up
of both test sets.
Standard Features
• Over 30 new screens, including support for MTL, Comm
C and Comm D formats
•
Remote Operation via IEEE 488.2-1987 or RS-232
•
Rapid updating of data fields using continuous rotation
"SLEW" knob or keypad
•
Rear panel interconnects for control and signal monitoring
•
Control of P2, P3, P4 and P6 width, offset and amplitude
•
Fixed frequency/fixed level RF output for diversity antenna testing
•
Mode S interrogation rates up to 2500 PRF burst

•
Onboard GPIB interface to increase the speed of ATE test
routines
•
Battery back-up memory for storage of additional test data
•
PRF generator from 99.999 sec to 7999 Hz
•
Flash memory for easy firmware upgrades

CONTROL MENU FUNCTIONS
Mode Select (Pulse Variable)
ATC
ATC-1400A only provides the pulse modulation (A, C, etc.). The
Accessory unit will measure and display Reply Delay for ATC modes.
SEQ
Mode S interrogations are provided from the Accessory unit (outputs
the stored sequence). PRF selection is made from the ATC-1400A
front panel switches. The ATC-1400A transponder mode select switch
is overridden.
ACS
ATCRBS All-Call short
PRF selection is made from the ATC-1400A front panel switches.
ACL
ATCRBS/Mode S All-Call long
PRF selection is made from the ATC-1400A front panel switches.
INTLCE
Set ratio of Mode S interrogations (from the sequence menu) to
ATCRBS interrogations
NOTE: Mode S interrogations are interlaced with a fixed delay of 400
ps following P1.
DI
Set double interrogation modes (any combination of ATCRBS, All-Call
and Mode S).
NOTE: Enable and DI delay are controlled by the ATC-1400A front
panel switches.
