HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD THE “SAME OLD STORY” ?

Have you been told that you cannot get ILS service at your airport because
the site is too difficult………throw that old report away! We don’t believe it
and let us tell you why!

End-fire antennas can offer numerous benefits over conventional image systems:

  • -Significant Cost Savings by Avoiding Expensive Ground Plane Conditioning.
  • -Provide ILS Service where Previously not Possible or Cost Effective due to Terrain.
  • -Proven Frangible Low-Profile Design Permitting “Next to Runway” Installation.
  • -Save the Wetlands or Avoid High Wetland Relocation Costs.
  • -Waterside Installations Since the Signal is not Degraded by Tidal Variations.
  • -Precision Glide Path Guidance is Achieved with Narrow Lateral Radiation
  • -Patterns that Reduce Multi-path Signals from Buildings or Mountainous Terrain.

What About Improvements to Airport Efficiency?
The End-fire Critical Area Size is Substantially Smaller and can mean
More Operations Per Hour!
