Abstract:

With SC-117, national, and USAF plans partially formulated for the design of a new Microwave Landing System MLS to meet common civilmilitary and common CTOLVSTOL requirements, attention is now focused on technical and operational areas of landing where critical decisions must be made to narrow the competing techniques to a single national standard. The Air Force missions utilize not only conventional, fixed MLS installations, but also mobile MLS units quickly installed at remote or foreign airfields. A design of a very-low-cost MLS is outlined since the number of military aircraft to be equipped with MLS will be determined by the minimum cost and minimum service configurations of the national MLS system.
