Abstract

In order to use Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) properly, the impact of intra-system and inter-system electromagnetic interference must be analyzed firstly. However, the error of interference analysis using present methods based on pulse overlap is large when there are more aircraft. The aim of this article is to study a method of analyzing interference on DME whether the number of aircraft is small or not. According to the flow chart of DME signal, we studied the limitations of present methods; then constructed a model of analyzing the collision between duration of desired signal and dead time of receiver based on M/M/1/0 queueing system. Combing this model with other methods, we present a analytic model of analyzing intra-system and inter-system interference on DME. Using this analytic model, we analyzed reply efficiency (RE) and capacity of DME under intra-system and Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) interference. The result shows that the calculation for the probability of overlap between DME dead time and subsequent signals using queueing model agrees well with simulation. Consequently, the analytic model is more accurate than using a single method to analyze interference on DME. View Full-Text
