Abstract:

The results of analysis directed towards determining Microwave Landing System MLS signal requirements for conventional aircraft are discussed. The phases of flight considered include straight-in final approach, flareout, and rollout. A limited number of detailed problems in performance analysis are studied. Data from computer simulation, covariance propagation and system optimization, with a careful selection of variables provides a means for generalizing from the results of specific experiments to more comprehensive functional, data rate, beam noise, and control system requirements for automatic landing in turbulence.
