The Terminal Radar Data Processing system processes the radar data from various primary and secondary radars to present the aircraft position and its related information, e.g. aircraft callsign, altitude, ground speed, aircraft category, etc. on the radar display. This information is used by air traffic controllers to control the approach/departure, terminal and en-route traffic. This data display is specifically called Terminal Radar Data Display (TRDD).

TRDD is an equipment used by air traffic controllers to identify all aircraft that are within the 60 mile-radius (Nm) of the aerodrome surrounding NAIA. The system is also vital in the technical description in monitoring and measuring the distance, speed and altitude of every aircraft passing through the airport.

It is also an important tool in guiding pilots as relayed by the air traffic controllers. With this unit unserviceable, airlines should expect longer queues at the runway during takeoff and landing, which may cause additional expenses for their companies and inconvenience to domestic and international passengers.

Uncertified tower display workstations shall be used only as an aid to assist controllers in visually locating aircraft or in determining their spatial relationship to known geographical points. Radar services and traffic advisories are not to be provided using uncertified tower display workstations. General information may be given in an easy to understand manner, such as to your right or ahead of you.

DEDS/RDD/TRDD Display and Control

Operation Mode

Normal Mode (Replay Mode) Displays the target data processed by CPS, including list data, weather data, and controlling data. Display video (decoded video from SSR, and normal(raw) video and MTI video from ASR) Since video data is not recorded, replay mode does not display video data.

Bypass Mode Displays raw target data directly from radar. Displays video and part of digital data (Mode A and C) Not display list data, weather data and controlling data.

Test Mode (available only for DEDS) Allows to create and modify the map data Allows to execute off-line diagnostics

Input device How does operator execute control command? Use keyboard Use trackball Use Function Channel Switch Use combination of operation of 3 input devices
