Onboard Digital Receiver Architecture and Design of the Phase Radio-Navigation System for Aircraft Blind Landing

Authors(3) :-Saed Sasi, Nasar Aldian Shashoa, Sulaiman Khalifa Yakhlef

This work describes the architecture and design of an onboard digital receiver of the phase radio-navigation system for aircraft blind landing proposed in [1]. The proposed onboard digital receiver is a special case of a multi-channel narrowband digital receiver concept. The purpose of this receiver is to receive eight different RF frequencies (in four pairs) range from 960 MHz to 963.003749941 MHz, carry on them the required analogue and digital signal processing techniques to evaluate their phase shifts and then the difference phase shifts between each pair of them. The phase measurements lead to determination of the location of the aircraft with respect to the touch point on the runway with accuracy in millimetres.
