CAPABILITIES OF THE NEW ILS

Richard H. McFarland and David Quinet

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: A review of the new Instrument Landing System (ILS) currently being deployed by the Federal Aviation Administration for use by pilots in making very low visibility landings is presented. The Mark-20, as it is designated, is compatible with all present ILS receiving equipment and is intended principally as an upgrade to replace the first solid-state transmitting equipment, which was typically placed in service approximately 25 years ago. New features such as remote control provisions and the novel components to accomplish this control are described.
