Abstract:

The integration of the Microwave Landing System MLS into a representative selection of United States Air Force aircraft is investigated to identify problems affecting Air Force requirements for MLS. Antenna configurations and signal processing and interface designs are developed for the C-130E, C-5A, FB-111A, and F-15. These configurations and designs provide data for the environmental, cost, and systems effectiveness analyses presented in this report. A comparative analysis of different approach capabilities is carried out, using the C-130E as an illustration. These capabilities include straight, curved, and stepped approach paths as well as approaches into forward operating bases. Modified author abstract
