Abstract : The study derives guidelines for MLS implementation planning from basic safety requirements for landing systems, from contemporary qualification criteria and from existing system status. A quantitative method is developed to facilitate evaluation of alternative MLS implementation plans, based on the conclusion that instrument approaches to ILS and MLS represent an increase in safety over approaches made to non-precision facilities. Substantiation of this conclusion, validation of the method, projection of instrument approaches and other steps leading to a detailed MLS implementation schedule are defined and their accomplishment recommended.
