Abstract:

A feasibility model of an Inertial Locator Equipment ILE was designed to provide aircraft position information and on-board computer data processing for flight inspection of VOR, TACAN, VORTAC, and ILS facilties. Following equipment installation and preliminary flight tests at the contractors flight facility located on Hanscom Field, contractorNAFEC developmental tests were conducted at Atlantic City, New Jersey, using NAFECs theodolite and radar tracking and computer facilities. The developmental test effort concentrated on system performance in accomplishing ILS flight inspection. This report evaluates ILE performance based on data collected during developmental testing.
