Abstract:

The circuits of the Mark 3 Instrument Landing System which are susceptible to false actuation due to electrical transients on interconnecting electrical cables are identified. The effects of the transients on system operation are analyzed. The circuit modifications required to prevent operational upsets due to transients are presented. The points of entry of surges on AC power lines in the system are identified.
