Abstract:

This report presents work done during phase 3 of the US national Microwave Landing System MLS program toward the developing of a computer simulation mode of MLS multipath effects, the experimental validation of the model, and the application of the model to investigate multipath performance of ICAO proposals for the new approach and landing guidance system. The second volume of the report presents the mathematical models and validation data for the MLS techniques which were assessed in detail by the All weather Operations Panel of the International Civil Aviation Organiation. The specific technques modeled are 1. The Time Reference Scanning Beam TRSB sysem proposed by the United States US and Australia, with prime emphasis on the US equipment implementation and field test data, 2. the Doppler scan DMLS proposed by the United Kingdom, 3. the DME Based Landing System DLS proposed by the Federal Republic of Germany.
