The object of the project was to develop a receiver type monitor to operate as an integral part of the proposed Federal Aviation Agencys All-Weather Landing System. The monitor was designed with optimum reliability, flexibility, and stability in order to attain the highest degree of safety for aircraft operating to the lowest minimal. The most advanced techniques within the state of the art were employed within the monitor. Also, the monitor was designed so that it could be incorporated into either the localizer or glide slope system. Each monitor system is composed of three units, with one unit containing the rf-if-detector circuits, one unit containing the audio and alarm circuitry, and the third consisting of the monitor power supply. The audio and alarm unit is identical for both localizer and glide slope operation, whereas the rf-if-detector units have been specifically designed for localizer or glide slope respectively. The ILS Monitor was evaluated for performance, and the final design thoroughly tested. Author
