Multilateration is a proven technology that has been in use for many decades. It was developed for military purposes to accurately locate aircraft —many of which did not wish to be “seen” — by using a method known as Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA). Multilateration employs a number of ground stations, which are placed in strategic locations around an airport, its local terminal area or a wider area that covers the larger surrounding airspace. Furthermore, while the radar and multilateration “targets” on a controller’s screen are identical in appearance, the very high update rate of the multilaterationderived targets makes them instantly recognizable by their smooth movement across the screen. A screen displaying multilateration information can be set to update as fast as every second, compared with the 4 - 12 second position “jumps” of the radar-derived targets. These units listen for “replies,” typically to interrogation signals transmitted from a local SSR or a multilateration station. Since individual aircraft will be at different distances from each of the ground stations, their replies will be received by each station at fractionally different times. Using advanced computer processing techniques, these individual time differences allow an aircraft’s position to be precisely calculated. Multilateration requires no additional avionics equipment, as it uses replies from Mode A, C and S transponders, as well as military IFF and ADS-B transponders. “Multilateration offers ANSPs the possibility of providing a surveillance service at a potentially much lower cost, greater reliability and higher levels of accuracy than conventional SSR.” Alexander ter Kuile CANSO Secretary General Multilateration ( MLA T ) MLAT ground stations receive replies from all transponder-equipped aircraft, including legacy radar and ADS-B avionics, and determine aircraft position based on the time difference of arrival (TDOA) of the replies.

which implies that it operates in the VHF band. See Fig 1. and if you continue with the cardinal points. VOR has been the main short-range navigational aid for several years. the VOR produces a number of tracks all originating at the transmitter. Adopted by ICAO as early as 1960. As opposed to the NDB. the signal transmitted by the VOR contains directional information. This means that the transmitter on the ground produces and transmits a signal. January 3. Omnidirectional means that it can be seen from any position around the lighthouse. which make it possible for the receiver to determine its position in relation to the ground station by comparing the phases of these two signals. Short range infers that ranges up to 200 NM can be expected. Think of a lighthouse at sea and imagine the white light rotating at a speed of one revolution per minute (60 seconds). The principle of operation is bearing measurement by phase comparison. radial 090° points to the East. These tracks are called «radials» and are numbered from 1 to 360. a green omnidirectional light flashes. or ° . The 360° radial is the track leaving the VOR station towards the Magnetic North. 2009 DVOR DME Principle of Operation VOR 2007. we can measure the time interval from the green light flash until we dv or-dme. In theory. or actually two separate signals.01. Every time this white narrow beam passes through Magnetic North. It is still the most commonly used short-range aid. expressed in degrees. If we are situated somewhere in the vicinity of the light sources and are able to see them.20 VOR is an abbreviation for "VHF Omnidirectional Radio Range". which transmits a non-directional signal.1/12/13 DVOR DME Posted by Jack at 5:56 AM No comments: Saturday.in .blogspot.1 Before we look in detail at how the system works the following example illustrates the principle and should make it easier to understand. all in relation to the magnetic North. the 180° radial to the South and the 270° radial to the West.
surveyed site and consists of a transmitter driving a combined aerial system. Ground Installation The VOR system operates on frequencies between 108 MHz and 117. The elapsed time is directly proportional to our position line in relation to the lighthouse. It rotates at 30 revolutions per second. one part producing the Reference (REF) signal. When the two signals (VAR & REF) are mixed together.15 Localizer 112. The two signals are processed through different channels and dv or-dme. When assigning a VOR to this part of the frequency band.15 VOR 108. which is electronically rotated at 30 revolutions per second. Since this is an omnidirectional transmission. indicated with an arrow on fig. We call it a «limacon». The VOR uses frequencies having an even decimal as the first digit after the last MHz digit. we are on the 180° radial.35 Localizer The ground equipment is set up on a fixed. We could name these light signals. while localizers use odd decimals. In the receiver. The REF signal is an omnidirectional continuous wave transmission on the carrier frequency of that particular VOR station.30 Localizer 117.95 MHz are primarily used for the localiser part of the ILS but can be shared with short range VORs.95 MHz are solely used by VOR.10 Localizer 112.95 MHz. Frequencies between 108 MHz and 111.10 VOR 108.in .95 VOR 108.00 to 117. it is the 30Hz component of this signal that is used as a reference for measuring the phase difference. or socalled terminal VORs. The VOR receiver splits these two signals into the two original components. the resulting polar diagram will be a cardioid.2 The rotation of the limacon creates an effective amplitude modulation of 30 Hz. This calculation can be done from any position and the elapsed time is directly proportional to our angular position (radial). both on odd and even frequencies 108. The frequencies from 112. the polar diagram of the REF signal is a circle. The speed of 1 RPM corresponds to 6° per second.25 T-VOR 108. This ‘loop’ produces a figure of 8 polar diagram. It carries a 9960 Hz subcarrier that is frequency modulated at 30 Hz.blogspot. Channel separation is 50 kHz and the signals have a horizontal polarisation.20 T-VOR 112.see the white light.00 VOR 108. but unlike the cardioid of the ADF. The variable signal (VAR) is transmitted from an aerial that is effectively a loop. it is an essential requirement that it does not interfere with an adjacent ILS channel. calling the green one the Reference (REF) signal and the white beam the Variable (VAR) signal. or directly south of the station (30 sec x 6°/sec = 180°).1. this does not have a «null» position. so if 30 seconds elapse between the time we see the green flash and the white rotating light. the other producing the Variable (VAR) signal.
or the complete transmitter is taken off the air. We come back to this in the section Limitations and accuracy. The REF signal of the DVOR is amplitude modulated. The change of FM and AM for the REF and VAR signals. as compared to the CVOR. The Doppler effect is created by letting the VAR signal be «electronically rotated». the receiver is on the 360° radial from the station.the phase of the 30 Hz modulations of the fixed REF signal and the VAR signal are compared in a phase comparator. Doppler VOR (DVOR) The Doppler VOR is the second generation VOR. The CVORs suffer from reflections from objects in the vicinity of the VOR site and it was found that errors due to this could have been reduced if the horizontal antenna dimensions were increased. This means that the modulations are opposite as compared to the conventional VORs. at a speed of 30 revolutions per second. CVOR. The phase difference between these two signals is directly proportional to angular position with reference to the VOR station. Today few company manufacturing DVOR and DME in world. providing improved signal quality and accuracy. This was not practical to do and a new system had to be developed: the DOPPLER VOR. so when 0° phase difference is detected. The VOR receiver does not know if it is receiving a signal from a CVOR or a DVOR and the pilot treats both types in the same way. This results in an effective FM of 30 Hz. The phase difference and variable signal at the cardinal points. magnetic North is the normal reference for the radials. that will be described in the next section. while the VAR signal is frequency modulated. on the circular placed aerials. About of DVOR/DME producers and their listed prices. DVOR. compared to the CVOR. A receiver situated at some distance in the radiation field continuously monitors the transmitter. is compensated for by having the DVOR antenna pattern rotate the opposite way. When certain prescribed deviations are exceeded. This will create a Doppler shift. either the IDENT is taken off. The description above is valid for the convential VOR. causing the frequency to increase as the signal is rotated towards the observer and reduce as it rotates away with 30 full cycles of frequency variation per second. The frequency modulated signal is less subject to interference than the amplitude modulated signal and therefore the received signals provide a more accurate bearing determination. I introducing . The CVORs are now gradually being replaced by DVORs.4 meters. the radial velocity of the VAR signal will be 1264 m/s. As explained. With a diameter of the circle of 13.
