The APM-424(V)4 is a performance and capability
upgrade to the TS-4530 and APM-424 test sets. The
APM-424(V)4 is fully compliant with DoD AIMS
standards for testing Mark XIIA performance of
Mode 4 equipment, DO-260B ADS-B Out performance,
and ICAO Annex 10 international standards for Mode S
ELS/EHS performance.
The APM-424(V)4 closely replicates legacy operation
for utilization of existing procedures, making the APM424(V)4 a cost effective, highly accurate upgrade to
fielded test sets.
The 20-character 4-line display provides for easily
viewable data and parametric measurements as required
for Mode S Elementary and Enhanced Surveillance
testing. For legacy test modes, the menu structure
and displayed data format have been retained so that
minimal changes are required of fielded procedures.
