AN/ARM-206 TACAN Test Set

AN/ARM-206 TACAN Test Set

The AN/ARM-206 is the industry’s first fully automated TACAN Test Set and is designed for depot and intermediate level support. The AN/ARM-206 meets all requirements for evaluating the performance and accuracy of airborne TACAN UUTs. The AN/ARM-206 generates signals that accurately simulate TACAN beacon signals to both the normal X and Y surface-to-air modes, as well as signals of an interrogating or complementary aircraft in X or Y air-to-air modes, including inverse mode. Easy-to-use colour touch-screen interface allows for easy changes to parameters and testing signals providing unsurpassed versatility.

The AN/ARM-206 measures fixed or varying range and bearing performance, including search/track ability, transmitter power output, receiver sensitivity, and coding and decoding parameters on all TACAN channels and air-to-air range and bearing performance.
