The report concerns the installation and evaluation of a newly developed clearance monitor system for standard ILS null reference glide slope. It is designed to provide an indication of the glide slope path width that is independent of snow cover conditions or changes in path angle. With minor exceptions, the test monitor system performed in the manner predicted. These exceptions relate principally to the detector point location in the near field, but do not derogate the systems application. This report finds that the proposed monitor system is superior to the present monitor system. It finds the principal disadvantages are the additional height required for the monitor antenna support and the cost of the additional components required.
