Abstract:

An evaluation of a prototype portable airfield lighting system was conducted for the United States Air Force by the Federal Aviation Administration at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center NAFEC, Atlantic City, New Jersey. The system was designed to provide both day and night visual guidance in VFR and IFR weather straight-in and circling approaches and landings. Comparative tests were conducted using Precision Approach Radar PAR in weather conditions of approximately 12-mile visibility. Author
