Abstract : The Texas Instruments Microwave Landing System (TI MLS) proposal was modeled in a 1980 high density environment. Its channel scheme and signal format were analyzed with the aid of a computer program to determine its adequacy in such a high density environment. Three other MLS proposals (ITT Gilfillan, Hazeltine, Bendix) were also examined. A comparison was made between the technical parameters of each and the parameters recommended by the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics Special Committee-117 (RTCA SC-117) to determine if the results of a previous analysis of the SC-117 MLS format could be applied to any of the three proposals.
