The report represents the conclusions, recommendations and selected data from the five month study program on the proposed Category III ILS ground system. The primary program effort was directed to the evaluation and adequacy of reliability, availability, safety, cost effectiveness, redundancy and monitoring. Included in the report is the format and summary of several computer programs utilizing a basic reliability model of the complete ground system. From these programs data was generated to depict the effect of various levels of redundancy and component reliability on system reliability and availability. Data are also presented to depict the combined effect of mean time between failure and mean time to restore on availability, and the resulting impact on maintenance requirements. The potential cost increments incurred from loss of availability as a result of various levels of unreliability, in terms of maintenance and user loss, is presented for several levels of ILS weather conditions. A proposed program is detailed for the inclusion of guaranteed reliability requirements in the procurement of ILS ground system components. Author
