Abstract:

This study was conducted to determine the need for Army Precision Landing System requirements for aviation deployment in the combat zone. The study identifies the need and best approaches for satisfying Army requirements within air traffic management functions, applying current tactical doctrine. Existing landing systems are compared with alternate systems not presently developed or fielded from a technical and operational viewpoint. Availability, operational concepts, and cost data are analyzed for each proposed system. The study also developed strengths and weaknesses of the existing, as well as proposed precision landing systems for ATC. Final results and recommendations to support air traffic control requirements on the battlefield beyond the year 2000 are depicted.
