Abstract:

Ku band microwave scanning beam landing systems are currently in various phases of development and use. Many parameters, such as modulation schemes, scale factors, and polarization have not yet been standardized. The intent of this study is to examine one of these areas, namely, signal polarization. This report presents evidence from exploratory investigations, model testing, computer modeling, and flight testing to show that horizontal polarization is the proper choice for Ku band landing guidance signals.
