Abstract : Under a joint U.S./FAA and U.K./DTI work agreement, a STAN-37 localizer (85-foot aperture) was installed and subjected to various tests at National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center (NAFEC), Atlantic City, New Jersey. These included conformance to ICAO Annex 10 Category 3 ILS specifications, system performance, system and monitor stability and monitor operation under degraded system performance. It was concluded that the system characteristics met ICAO specifications, and that monitor executive action occurs as required when faults are present. System availability sufficient for Category 3 operation should be established during an evaluation under operational conditional conditions. (Author)
