AUTOMATED LANDING, ROLLOUT, AND TURNOFF USING MLS AND MAGNETIC CABLE SENSORS
A description of the simulation program used to study the landing approach, rollout and turnoff of the B737-100 aircraft utilizing MLS and a buried magnetic leader cable as navigation aids is presented. Simulation results are given and show the concept to be both feasible and practical for commercial type aircraft terminal area control.
