1. SCOPE

The objective of this document is to give the list of the Operational Parameters and of the
measurements/states of the Data Processing Computer (DPC) configured as RSM in a
standalone or co-mounted architecture.
The Operational Parameters are defined as parameters which can be modified on site by using
the Site Dependent Parameters Tool (SDPT).
The Operational Parameters are managed by the MRP CSCI for each channel of the secondary
surveillance radar and are accessible by the SDPT (CBP CSCI).

This document is divided in two parts:


The first part gives the list of the Operational Parameters and Controls, accessible with SDPT
(CBP),
The second part gives the list of Measurements and States, accessible by SDPT (CBP).
This document is applicable to CBP Param config RSM CIRIUS 14.03-1.

ACCESSIBLE BY SDPT (CBP)
2.1 LIST OF RSM970S OPERATIONAL PARAMETERS
2.1.1 General
Parameter file transfer
Parameter file transfer and application from SDPT (CBP) to MRP is the main method of
parameter modification in MRP. The different types of parameter files which can be
transferred from/to MRP are:
Global type (GBL), containing the General parameters (which are site dependent) and the
Technical parameters (which are not site dependent), except cluster dependent parameters,
Cluster Management Parameter type (CMP), containing the Cluster Dependent parameters
which are unique for a cluster definition,
Radar Parameter Set type (RPS), containing the Cluster Dependent parameters which
depends on the cluster state (up to 16 RPS files may be present in MRP),
Coverage Map type (COV), containing the coverage map parameters (up to 16 COV files
may be present in MRP).
The useful operations which can be performed with CBP are the following ones:
Transfer of a complete set of parameter files (GBL, CMP, RPS, COV)
Transfer of only the GBL parameter file.
Transfer of only the Cluster Dependent Parameter files (CMP, RPS, COV)
MRP accepts these transfers from CBP whatever its operating state is. MRP accepts the
application command from CBP only when its operating state is maintenance.
The application of all files (or of a GBL file only) in MRP is always an immediate application.
The application of CDP files only in MRP may be immediate or differed.

Parameter direct access


Some MRP parameters can be read and modified individually by SDPT operator according to
the Direct access parameter attribute; in such a case, the parameter modification is accepted
or not by MRP according to its operating state.
RCMS access to parameters
Furthermore, some parameters can be read and/or modified individually by RCMS according
to the Key parameter attribute; in such a case, the parameter modification is accepted or not
by MRP according to its operating state.

Management Parameter), RPS (Radar Parameter Set),

parameter can be monitored (read only) and/or modified by the RCMS operator (K) or not
(N),
The direct access parameter attribute D (Direct) / N (Not direct), indicating whether the
parameter can be read and modified individually in MRP by SDPT (D) or not (N),
The operational / maintenance attribute OM (Operational and Maintenance) / M
(Maintenance only), useful for the parameters with Direct access allowed, indicating whether
the parameter is modifiable by direct access from CBP in both MRP operating state (OM) or
only in maintenance (M) state,
The init update attribute I (Init) / N (Not init), indicating whether a re-initialisation of
MRP/MRC is necessary for taking into account the parameter value change (I) or not (N),
The alignment attribute: A (Alignment), N (No alignment), I (Indifferent), indicating whether
the parameter is always subject to alignment (A), or never subject to alignment (N), or if this
is indifferent (I).

In the following table, - means not applicable.

- DIFFERENCE RSLS value (from -10 dB to +10 dB, step = 1 dB) QRSLS output by the receiver to the MMX in order to indicate if the video
- DIFFERENCE RSLS validation has been received on the main lobe (if VS > VW + K1) and in a central
- CONTROL RSLS value (from 0 dB to +10 dB, step = 1 dB) part of the main lobe (VS > VD + K2).
- CONTROL RSLS validation The signal QRSLS is elaborated using:
the Difference RSLS value, named also K2, if Difference RSLS validation
is selected,
the Control RSLS value, named also K1, if Control RSLS validation is
selected.
In MMX (if one RSLS validation is selected), the Mode S and SSR replies
not detected in the main lobe are rejected. Note that this parameter should
be adjusted to leave the beam quite large.
See detail in Receiver Technical Manual and in MMX Technical Manual.

I/R map selection Allows to select the I/R map (map 1 or map 2) to be used for all the OPE GEN GBL K D OM N A The selection of I/R map 1/2 allows to change temporarily the operational
Radar Parameter Sets TVBC, IISLS or attenuation law. This is a key parameter (RCMS) that can
be selected manually according to a specific air situation e.g. selection of
a runway at take-off instead of landing may require a specific TVBC law.

I/R map Allows to define: OPE RPS RPS N D OM N A General: Maps are defined continuously: azimuth sector start defines the
- I/R map 1 azimuth sector end of the previous sector.
- I/R map 2
each I/R map comprises a power map (sectorized output power
attenuation definition), an IISLS map (sectorized IISLS activation and
attenuation definition), a TVBC map (sectorized TVBC law selection),
programmed in the following way :
- power map content:

are concerned by this suppression, as soon as the level of interrogation
received from the CONTROL pattern is greater than the transponder
Minimum Triggering Level (MTL). If several SSRs and Mode S Radars are

difficulties for the detection of targets by other radars. It is recommended
to use IISLS with a low attenuation for sectors where reflection

GENERAL:
The SM1 channel number is marked with a label located on the front
panel of the corresponding SMS or SMS-1 channel unit. When SMS (or
SMS-1) channel are named (SMS1 or SMS2) in the hereunder lines, it
refers to the channel with the corresponding label.
Parameters set with CBP must be consistent with the one set thanks to
SMSP software (in SDPT) in the corresponding SMS channel unit. For
that purpose, the parameters set with SMSP are marked with a field at
time of recording these parameters. Refer to SMS/SMS-1 Technical
Manual, which gives guidance for setting (section 3).

SM1 channel 2 presence SM1 channel 2 is present (false/true) OPE GEN GBL K D OM N A Identical to SM1 channel 1 presence, but for channel 2.
