Abstract:

Based on the results of the demonstration, it is concluded that 1 Radioactive taxi guidance is technically feasible. 2 Weight and volume of the present detector are excessive for the function performed. 3 The non-homogeneity of radiation source produces faulty guidance signals. 4 Pilots experience difficulty in maneuvering, due to lack of a reference to determine rate of change in the maneuver.
