Abstract : A prototype flight inspection polariscope was designed, developed, fabricated, and installed on the Rockwell International Sabreliner 40 flight inspection aircraft. In conjunction with the aircraft's standard receiver and recorder, the polariscope system enables the flight inspector to measure the effect of vertically polarized radiations from ground navigation facilities on aircraft course-deviation indicators. The system has the demonstrated capability of measuring with a 0.2 deg accuracy the VOR, localizer, and glide slope signals in the 108 to 118, 108 to 112, and 328 to 335 MHz ranges, respectively. Four major assemblies constitute the polariscope system: (1) VOR/localizer antennas, (2) glide slope antennas, (3) an RF phase shifter, and (4) a control box.
