Abstract : This report describes a model schedule for the gradual augmentation of a VFR airport lighting system such that each component added to the basic configuration represents an operationally important gain in guidance value. The schedule is characterized as a building blocks approach to system evolution adjusted on the one hand to operational requirements and resources and on the other hand to the state of the art in equip ment development. Where it is not possible to bring the two together, suggestions are added for future work. (Author)
