SITING OF TARGET SIMULATORS. (CONT)
Td point should be determined and marked before siting target simulators. When positioning target
simulators, face grid side of simulator directly at radar set group.
PERSONNEL REQUIRED: Two
Method one places two target simulators on opposite sides of runway bracketing td point, and one simulator on rpl. This
method is used when the two simulators bracketing td point can be positioned at least 75 feet from clr and when there are
no obstacles on sides of runway that would obscure radar returns from these target simulators.
Method two should be used if the two target simulators bracketing td point cannot each be positioned at
least 75 feet from clr, or if there are obstacles that will obscure radar returns from these simulators.
Read and become familiar with siting procedure in steps 1 through 6 before attempting to site target simulators.
Because a theodolite is not used in this method, distances are determined by lining up points by eye and then measuring
the distances between points. Be as accurate as possible when lining up points; an error here will cause Inaccuracies
when siting target simulators.
