Abstract : Functional requirements and operating environment constraints for an Independent Landing Monitor for aircraft landings in Cat. II/III weather conditions are identified and translated into specific sensing requirements. State-of-the-art capabilities of radar, TV, FLIR, multilateration, microwave radiometry, interferometry, redundant MLS and nuclear sensing concepts are evaluated and compared to the requirements. Concepts showing the best ILM potential are identified.
