Abstract : In analyzing the altitude control loop in carrier landing, it is necessary to examine the geometry involved in the calculation of effective display sensitivity. This report describes the method of determining this gain for a deck-mounted display of glide path error. Of particular utility in comparing existing systems with one another or with proposed new systems is the concept of relative display sensitivity, which is the ratio of the effective display sensitivity of one display to that of another.
