MLS MULTIPATH STUDIES. PHASE 3. VOLUME II. DEVELOPMENT AND VALIADATION OF MODEL FOR MLS TECHNIQUES

This report presents work done during phase 3 of the US national Microwave Landing System (MLS) program toward the developing of a computer simulation mode of MLS multipath effects, the experimental validation of the model, and the application of the model to investigate multipath performance of ICAO proposals for the new approach and landing guidance system. The second volume of the report presents the mathematical models and validation data for the MLS techniques which were assessed in detail by the All weather Operations Panel of the International Civil Aviation Organization. The specific technques modeled are: 1. The Time Reference Scanning Beam (TRSB) system proposed by the United States (US) and Australia, with prime emphasis on the US equipment implementation and field test data, 2. the Doppler scan (DMLS) proposed by the United Kingdom, 3. the DME Based Landing System (DLS) proposed by the Federal Republic of Germany.
