TRIALS OF THE DOPPLER MICROWAVE LANDING SYSTEM AT LONDON (GATWICK) AIRPORT, AUGUST 1977

The trials of the Doppler microwave landing (DMLS) at Gatwick formed part of a series conducted at operational airports to collect data for the ICAO evaluation program. Typical data collected from the trials at Gatwick and analysis of the results show that DMLS met the performance requirements at this airport for line of sight propagation paths. No specific technique related effects were seen and the results are regarded as typical of C band MLS performance at this airport.
