TRSB MICROWAVE LANDING SYSTEM DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM AT DAKAR, SENEGAL

The demonstration at Yoff Airport, Dakar, Senegal, was the eighth in a series of operational demonstrations of several TRSB system configurations at selected airports in the United States and abroad. The TRSB Small Community System was installed on the same runway as a commissioned ILS. Flight checks established that no mutual interference resulted. Operational demonstrations and data acquisition flights were made utilizing an FAA Boeing 727 testbed aircraft. Flight profiles included approaches, radials, and partial orbits perpendicular to the runway centerline. Results of the operational demonstrations indicated that the performance of the TRSB Small Community System configuration was within the Phase III design requirements and met the ICAO 'full capability system' requirements.
