Design and implementation of a practical aircraft position and reporting identification Beacon project is a MATLAB project. Main aim of this project is to develop a new method for tracking aircrafts which does not depend on transponders. In order to develop this system we are using PRIB (practical aircraft position and reporting identification beacon) technology. In order to replace existing transponder system new system should fulfill size, cost, and power efficient and satisfy financial constraints. PRIB technology works on GPS technology in which GPS receiver will track aircraft signals and send to base station which is located at different locations in the form of radio signals. In this paper we provide detailed explanation on design and manufacture of PRIB. Performance is compared between existing transponders and PRIB system and detailed report is provided.

This application uses Gaussian Minimum Shift Keying (GMSK) modulation technique which is one of the secured and efficient modulation techniques used in wireless communication system.

In existing system transponders are used for tracking aircrafts which had shown few issues in recent years mainly at the time of terrorist’s attacks using aircrafts. These transponders can switch off deliberately and stops tracking aircraft for a base station. In order to solve this problem a efficient method need to be developed.

In present system we use PRIB based system which can work without depending on transponders. This system works on GPS technology which is secure and cost efficient.

In this project we provide detailed explanation on topics like aviation survey, global position system and modulation, hardware implementation, software implementations, measurements and experimental results and future development.
