6-7 INTERROGATOR TESTING.
The TS-4530 supports many interrogator types, and all features and tests may not be needed for some
interrogators. Refer to the appropriate support manuals for the platform equipment for additional Test Setup
Short range missile systems typically do not utilize target altitude or target type (identify, emergency)
information, and the TS-4530 setup conditions for these parameters may be left in any position.
Scenario tests are normally only used to test interrogator or TCAS (collision avoidance) systems with
display units. Testing a TCAS system requires significant knowledge of the interaction of the TCAS with
other aircraft systems, and requires spoofing of the aircraft on ground switch, radar altimeter, and
barometric altitude systems to operate correctly during testing.
For Interrogator/TCAS Testing, perform the Test Set setup of Interrogator Default Setup. Setting the Test
Set altitude may or may not be necessary depending on the platform under test.
