Abstract : The TSC electromagnetic scattering model has been used to predict the course deviation indications (CDI) at the planned Dallas Fort Worth Regional Airport. The results show that the CDI due to scattering from the modeled airport structures are within Category I requirements on all four modeled runways when the capture effect localizer (Alford 1B) is used but only marginally acceptable when the standard V-Ring localizer is used. Category II requirements for the designated Category II runway are met only by the capture effect antenna. The report also presents the results of the TSC validation test in which Syracuse Hancock Airport was modeled. Theoretical and flight recorded data were compared and good agreement was obtained.
