REDUCTION OF PARALLEL RUNWAY REQUIREMENTS

The report presents results and recommendations concerning the relaxation of spacing requirements for independent instrument flight rules parallel approaches into closely spaced runways. All results presented in the report are derived by analyzing what system design or performance changes are required (either airborne or ground based) so as to result in safety equal to the current system's, but at closer spacing. A set of system changes and improvements are specified which, based on analysis, will permit closer runway spacing. (Author)
