Abstract:

A mathematical modeling study of the proposed Microwave Landing System MLS for runway 27L at Philadelphia International Airport was performed at the request of the MLS Program Office. The study focused on the feasibility of three offset approaches designed to maintain acceptable separation distance from aircraft approaching runway 27R. Modeling was performed using these three approaches, two elevation sites, one azimuth site, and several potential multipath obstacles. Results of the modeling study indicate that the three offset approach procedures would be feasible in this environment. No problematic effects from the airport environment were predicted within the usable coverage volume of the MLS signal.
