Abstract:

This phase of the project was performed under Technical Program Document TPD 04-109, subprogram 075-725-210. The report covers the findings on system accuracy and stability of the L-Band Precision Distance Measuring Equipment PDME. The results showed differences in bias under varying conditions of approaches, orbits, radials, and river runs. The 24-hour overall stability of the system was recorded. Further testing should be performed with simulators that have the desired accuracy required for testing a PDME system so that a baseline can be established. Author
