Abstract : The subject effort was to determine the suitability of a newly designed elevated runway edge light to function in category I and category II operations when a high-intensity runway-light environment is prevalent. The work involved laboratory photometric measurements and analysis of pilot response after test flying the newly designed runway lighting system. The results of the tests indicated that the new design concept is appropriate for use under the conditions tested. (Author)
