Aeroflex is a leader in the design, manufacture
and marketing of Avionics test systems.
The TCAS-201 allows verification and certification of an aircraft's TCAS installation, performing
many of the required tests for Supplemental
Type Certification (STC) during initial installation
and subsequent routine maintenance.
The TCAS-201 includes the capability to monitor
TCAS interrogations (displaying decoded information/communication data) and generating
ATCRBS or Mode S replies that simulate threat
aircraft for bearing accuracy checks.
Programming flexibility of the TCAS-201 allows
the operator to exercise and generate Traffic
Advisory (TA) and Resolution Advisory (RA)
alerts. The TCAS-201 is environmentally packaged to operate in all weather conditions and is
protected against the shock and vibration
encountered during ramp use.
Operation
The TCAS-201 uses four basic test functions. Power and frequency, monitor, reply, scenario and one configuration function. Setup is
for the gathering and verification of TCAS system data.
The Setup Menu is used to program parameters for Scenario Tests
and additional control of test set functions.
The Power and Frequency screen displays interrogator Effective
Radiated Power (ERP) and Frequency.
The Surveillance and Broadcast Monitor screen displays the contents of the major interrogation fields incorporated in UF0 and
UF16 and verifies the TCAS Broadcast is transmitted in UF16
approximately every ten seconds.
In the ATCRBS Reply Test the TCAS-201 simulates a Mode C
transponder with programmable percentage reply, altitude and range
parameters.
Scenario Test
Running the Scenario Test enables the user to simulate an approaching intruder with constant closing rate and constant altitude change
rate. Up to 10 user programmed scenarios can be stored and later
recalled. Scenario test time and total elapsed test time enable the
user to monitor times for TCAS Traffic and Resolution Advisories.

Percent Reply
Mode S Reply Test
The Mode S Reply Test can be used to evaluate the ability of the
TCAS interrogator to receive, decode and respond to Mode S replies.
In this mode the TCAS-201 simulates a Mode S transponder replying with formats DF0, DF11 and DF16. The message fields allow the
user to program capability information and various advisories into the
replies.

Whisper-Shout Monitor
The Whisper-Shout Monitor screen provides information used to
verify whisper-shout steps and Side Lobe Suppression (SLS). By
conducting several tests from different points around the aircraft, the
TCAS coverage (directional and/or omni-directional), whisper-shout
sequence operation and interrogation timing may be evaluated.
