Abstract:

This study evaluated the performance of the Microwave Landing System MLS math model by comparing the results of the models simulation errors along a flightpath with actual flight check measurements. The data collected for this study were designed specifically to evaluate the shadowing aircraft computations of the model. The results showed that there was some agreement between measured and modeled data, but it was concluded that further development of the shadowing aircraft computations is required.
