C-141 ALL WEATHER LANDING SYSTEM ENGINEERING SUPPORT
The systems and equipment described augment the capability of the standard C-141 Category II All Weather Landing System (AWLS) to operate in Category III weather conditions. This final report describes the physical location, operation, and theory of operation of the individual systems. A description of the on-board test instrumentation used to document the results of the AWLS test flights is included. A simulation model of the NC-141A test aircraft was developed to facilitate analysis of an AWLS operation on a system mock-up. The aircraft equations of motion which were used and the results of the simulation model testing are a part of this report.
