Abstract:

The Landing Control, Central, ANGSN-5 is a ground-based, final approach navigation system providing 3 basic approach and landing techniques, namely, completely automatic control, crosspointer guided approach, and talkdown. These techniques may be used singularly or in combination. In all cases, however, aircraft surveillance and guidance information are maintained to touchdown. The study of the compatibility of the C-131A aircraft, the E-4 auto-pilot, and the Landing Control, Central, ANGSN-5 indicates that, with the airborne and ground units conforming to the performance requirements stated herein, the aircraft and the ANGSN-5 system are compatible, and that satisfactory all weather automatic final approaches and landings can be made. The aircraft is also compatible with the ANGSN-5 system for cross-pointer or talkdownguided approaches. Author
