Abstract:

This report describes current siting criteria for the Microwave Landing Systems MLS. These criteria have been obtained through flight testing, mathematical and computer modeling, and publications from other sources. The first three chapters provide a description of MLS principles and a technical description of each of the system components. Chapter Four introduces the reader to general principles germane to siting, such as critical areas and propagation effects. Chapter Five describes the criteria for siting the MLS in an ideal airport environment. The final chapter gives solutions to difficult siting problems such as MLSILS collocation, multipath and shadowing effects, and collocation with approach lighting systems. Author
