Microwave Landing System Elevation
|Term||Microwave Landing System Elevation|
A component of a Microwave Landing System (MLS) consisting of an Super High Frequency (SHF) transmitter radiating signals to provide vertical indications as an angular value to aircraft approaching the runway.
The vertical information is the locus of points in any vertical plane where the decoded guidance angle is constant. SHF is the frequency band between 3 and 30 gigahertz (GHz). The elevation and azimuth stations of the Microwave Landing System operate from 5031 to 5091 megahertz (MHz) in this spectrum.
