Abstract : The results of this study are based on analog computer simulations of various aircraft and control system combinations; and on the use of overflight interference data supplied by the Federal Aviation Agency. The results indicate that if the total interference duration is less than 40 seconds there is no objectionable effect on landing aircraft of the DC-7 or KC-135 type. This requires that interfering aircraft flying at less than 200 feet per second should be restricted to altitudes above 3000 feet when over the runway and within the = 8 degree sector defined by the standard directional localizer. When the landing aircraft is of the TG 102 type the peak CDE deviations due to overflight interference should be less than = 30 micron a. This is possible if the interfering aircraft is above 8000 feet and when the localizer transmitter is mounted 1/2 wavelength above ground. (Author)
