In this course CAPTv2, a SASS-C module for coverage analysis and planning, is the enabling software tool for achieving the main objective, i.e. planning surveillance system installations, based on solid and objective coverage analysis? CAPTv2 is very user-friendly and runs as a stand-alone tool on a Windows platform. The purpose of CAPT is to allow users to specify ground stations associated with different surveillance techniques, calculate the geographical coverage of the ground stations, and display the overall coverage achieved by a surveillance system, including the multiplicity of coverage provided either by a single technique or a mixture of different surveillance techniques. CAPT calculates and displays the following types of coverage: • Line-of-Sight (LoS) coverage maps based on an obstruction analysis of digital terrain data. • Performance Restricted (PR) coverage maps (ADS-B\TIS-B\WAM only) based on comparing the calculated performance of the surveillance technology with user-defined minimum performance requirements.
