Abstract:

This document describes the design of the Automatic Tracking and Control System that will be used with a Glide Slope and Localizer Scale Model ILS facilities. The design approach uses a positive drive system to control trolley height as a function of carriage displacement from threshold and glide path angle. A carriage and mast assembly simulating an aircraft on its final approach was designed and built. A digital servo system for the accurate positioning of the simulated aircraft receiving antenna was developed. Author
