TRSB MICROWAVE LANDING SYSTEM DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM AT SHIRAZ, IRAN

The system was flown to Shiraz in an FAA Boeing 727 testbed aircraft and installed on Runway 29R. Data acquisition and operational demonstration flights were flown with the FAA B-727 aircraft over the period March 3-8, 1978. During the flights, a radio telemetry theodolite was used for aircraft space-position data. Flight profiles included straight-in approaches at various elevation angles, level runs at 2000 feet altitude on centerline, and + or - 10-degree offsets, + or - 5-degree offsets, and 5-nautical mile partial orbits at 1500-feet altitude. Results of the flight tests indicate that the performance of the TRSB Small Community System was within the design requirements.
