Performance of the MADGE Aircraft Guidance System

Abstract

MADGE (Microwave Aircraft Digital Guidance Equipment) is a portable equipment which assists the landing of all types of aircraft at a variety of sites. It contains a digital data link operating at 5 GHz. Distance is derived in the air by measuring go-and-return time; angles are measured on the ground by passive interferometer receivers. Flight results relating to coverage and accuracy are presented.
