Abstract : The report presents the results of a study to determine how a test vehicle might be used to accomplish on-site periodic maintenance on Low Cost ILS equipment. The chief purpose of the vehicle would be to transport test equipment and unit spares to the site in conjunction with the secondary purpose of providing shelter during maintenance. The transportation aspect (area maintenance) was explored in detail. ILS candidate airports were plotted on a map, and a sample maintenance area was studied from a simulated maintenance schedule. It was concluded that the area maintenance system is highly advantageous and should be implemented as soon as an ILS design for this type of maintenance is available. The report includes specifications and guidelines for development of a Low Cost ILS System which is compatible with the area maintenance concept. (Author)
