INSTRUMENT LANDING SYSTEM IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM: FAR-FIELD MONITORING

Methods of far-field extrapolation monitoring of the ILS glide slope angle are investigated. The use of a quasilinearization algorithm to determine path angle and width from measurements below obstruction heights at the middle marker is described with results for various fault conditions tabulated. A precision space modulation quotient monitor (SMQ) for measuring high values of DDM at low signal levels is described. A description of investigations of a field strength monitor using the capture effect principle to sense changes in low altitude field strength caused by environmental effects is included. (Author)
