Simulator Evaluation of “Basic” Mode Back Azimuth Issues in Departure and Missed Approach Usage 892216

Two piloted simulation studies were conducted to examine the operational issues involved in using front and back azimuth functions of the Microwave Landing System (MLS) in precision departure and missed approach procedures. These studies provided data to determine the optimum back azimuth signal sensitivity, to establish operationally acceptable limits and procedures for the use of back azimuth guidance, and to determine the optimum technique for switching from front to back azimuth guidance.
