Abstract
THE CONCEPTS PUT FORWARD IN THIS PROPOSAL PROVIDE FOR IMPROVED LINEUP ACCURACY VIA POSITIVE QUEUES AT GREATER DISTANCES (2NM) THAN PRESENTLY PROVIDED FOR CVN'S BY THE PRESENT SYSTEM. ALSO PRESENTED ARE CONCEPTS THAT WILL PROVIDE DISCORNABLE GLIDE PATH INFORMATION MORE POSITIVE IN QUEUE CHARACTERISTICS AND AT GREATER DISTANCES (2MM) THAN THAT PRESENTLY PROVIDED BY FLOLS. THE PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTS ARE BASED ON THE PRINCIPLES, COMPONENTS, AND USE OF EXISTING COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE PAPI SYSTEMS AND COMPONENTS. PHASE I ADDRESSES CONCEPT ANALYSES AND PRELIMINARY LAND BASED TESTING USING THE CANDIDATE PROPOSED DESIGNS. SMALL FIXED WING AIRCRAFT AND HELICOPTERS WILL BE UTILIZED AT A PRIVATE AIRPORT INSTALLATION, OR AN APPROPRIATE FIELD INSTALLATION WITH TEMPORARY LIGHTING SIMULATING THE BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VISUAL LANDING AIDS PROPOSED. PHASE II PLANS WILL BE ADDRESSED DURING PHASE I AND WILL LEAD TO MORE EXTENSIVE LANDING BASED TESTING, FIXTURE EVALUATION, SHIPBOARD INSTALLATION EVALUATION REQUIREMENT DURING THE PHASE II EFFORT FOR THE MOST VIABLE OF THE CONCEPTS EVALUATED IN PHASE I. THIS WILL CULMINATE IN A PROPOSED FLEET INSTALLATION PLAN WITH ESTIMATED COSTS, SCHEDULES, AND COST BENEFITS TO AID THE NAVY IN DEPLOYMENT DECISIONS.
