The report examines the potential benefits of a scanning beam microwave landing system MLS. The weather benefits estimated in Potential Economic Benefits of Fog Dispersal in the Terminal Area are examined using sensitivity analysis. This analysis reveals that the most important variable to refine in improving the benefit estimates is the value of passenger time. It is then recommended that passenger interviews are the best way to obtain the information necessary to refine the estimate of the value of time. Six areas of non-weather benefit which are frequently attributed to a MLS are examined. Facilities and circumstances which are needed in addition to a MLS are identified.
