ILS GLIDE SLOPE STANDARDS. PART II. VALIDATION OF PROPOSED FLIGHT INSPECTION FILTER SYSTEMS, AND RESPONSES OF SIMULATED AIRCRAFT ON COUPLED APPROACHES

The standard aid to low visibility approach and landing in commercial aviation is the Instrument Landing System (ILS). Two radio beams (the 'Glide Slope' and the 'Localizer') are formed to guide an aircraft on the proper approach glide path and along the extended runway centerline in the landing direction. Part I of this report documents the results of using system simulation and analysis techniques to determine maximum levels for ILS Glide Slope beam structure characteristics which still results in acceptable approach and landing outcomes. These results, in turn, led to recommendations for revision of the flight inspection procedure which is used to assure the accuracy of ILS Glide Slope facility guidance.
