Abstract:

The object of the project was to build eight 5479X Monitors and four 5479X1 Power Supplies as previously designed. Sixteen dual adapter units were to be developed and produced to permit the 5479X Monitor to be used in a near field monitoring system with the TRF Type field detectors now in use. The adapter was designed with maximum reliability and simplicity to operate in either localizer or glide slope function without degradation of the system. The two separate sections were designed so that for some future application they may be mounted in the 5479X Monitor with a minimum of modification to the monitor. The ILS Monitor Adapter is thus a simple unit that will permit the complex dual conversion detectors to be replaced by a simple TRF type for near field monitoring purposes. The Adapter has been thoroughly tested and evaluated with the 5479X Monitor as a system. Author
