Abstract : A feasibility model of an Inertial Locator Equipment (ILE) was designed to provide aircraft position information and on-board computer data processing for flight inspection of VOR, TACAN, VORTAC, and ILS facilties. Following equipment installation and preliminary flight tests at the contractor's flight facility located on Hanscom Field, contractor/NAFEC developmental tests were conducted at Atlantic City, New Jersey, using NAFEC's theodolite and radar tracking and computer facilities. The developmental test effort concentrated on system performance in accomplishing ILS flight inspection. This report evaluates ILE performance based on data collected during developmental testing.
