Abstract:

This study has examined the performance of the Capture Effect Glide Slope Array as a function of the quality and quantity of required ground plans. Methods of improvement were also investigated Wherein either a smoothing of the glide path structure or a reduction of the required ground plane was considered an improvement. An extensive computer model was developed and it was used to study the effect on glide path DDM of different position arrangements of elements. It was found that a unique arrangement of elements could be found for any terrain environment which would give a near zero DDM along the entire glide path up to threshold. Author
