A computer study is described of the effect on I.L.S. glide path performance of the addition of various damping terms to the glide path control law of a typical autopilot. The control laws used are analysed by a number of techniques and the results achieved by the different techniques are compared. It is shown that the performance can be improved by the addition of either a vertical velocity term coupled with an acceleration term, or a vertical velocity term coupled with a pitch rate term in the control law.
