Methodology ENAC

**Simulate these points with various modeling tools :**

Selection of test points to be tested during real ground and flight measurements with an A380 aircraft Simulate these points with various modeling tools : To reduce the number of points to be measured to the most significant ones To get some pre-measurement predictions in order to evaluate the prediction performances of the tools The first step in this study was to select test points to measure the disturbances introduced by the A380 and its impact on the critical and sensitive areas. This predefined set of test points has then be simulated by various ILS simulation tools in order to: Reduce the number of points to be measured to the most significant ones To get some pre-measurement predictions in order to evaluate the prediction performances of the tools

Analyze the measurements and evaluate the impact of the A380 on the size of the critical and sensitive areas Compare the measurements with the predictions of the modeling tools and evaluate the correlation between simulations and measurements. The measurements have then be analyzed to evaluate the impact of the A380 on the critical and sensitive areas. This was in fact the first objective of this study. The second objective was to compare the measurements with the predictions of the modeling tools and evaluate the correlation between simulations and measurements

**ILS simulation methodology**

Simulation of the radiation patterns delivered by the ILS Choose a method to simulate the propagation of electromagnetic waves and scattering on obstacles: To simulate the output readings from an ILS receiver in presence of an ILS signal with interferences requires several steps. Simulation of the radiation patterns delivered by the ILS as this has an impact on the incident signal on the obstacle. Choose a method to simulate the propagation of electromagnetic waves and scattering on obstacles:

**Multilevel Fast Multipole Method Physical Optics **

Method of Moments Multilevel Fast Multipole Method Physical Optics Improved Physical Optics Geometrical Optics Geometrical theory of diffraction Parabolic Equation Etc… Several methods are available. Some of them (like the Method of Moments) give an exact solution of Maxwell’s equations. Some others are called « asymptotic methods » and are based on some approximations valid under some conditions. One condition for the Physical optics is for example that the distance from the obstacles to the transmitter and to the receiver has to be greater than 2d2/l , with d one of the dimension of the object.

**Simulate the radiation pattern of the receiver’s antenna**

Design a model of the object to evaluate (A380) that fits with the simulation method and represents the most critical parts involved in the scattering of electromagnetic waves Simulate the radiation pattern of the receiver’s antenna Design a model of the object to evaluate (A380) that fits with the simulation method and represents the most critical parts involved in the scattering of electromagnetic waves Simulate the radiation pattern of the receiver’s antenna Signals coming from different direction may be attenuated differently.

7
**Simulate the receiver signal processing **

Simulate the measurement path and receiver speed Receiver from different manufacturer may give other readout for the same ILS signal. Measurement path and receiver speed have also to be simulated. As we will see later the speed plays an important role.

8
ILS simulation tools AXIS from NANCO, Oslo DOS program based on Physical Optics ATOLL from ENAC, Toulouse Windows program based on Physical Optics NPPM from OHIO University Windows program based on Physical Optics IHSS 3D modeling from NAVCOM Consult Several simulation tools have been used during this study. I will now go trough all the steps of simulation in a little bit more details.

**ILS radiation patterns**

Toulouse Blagnac 14R The reflected field from an object depends on the level of the incident signal which in turn depends on the radiation patterns of the ILS. Here we have for example the radiation patterns from the 25 element Thomson array in use at runway 14R

10
Frankfurt 25L At Frankfurt the runway 25L is setup with a 21/7 element array from THALES. As the patterns from different ILS’s are different the incident and so the reflected signals from an object will be different.

11
**A380 model Most realistic model**

A 3D model of the A380 is the most suitable object to use for simulating the impact of the A380 on the ILS signal. This model has to be subdivided into a set of triangles in order to apply the Method of Moments to calculate the scattered electromagnetic fields. The Method of Moments gives an exact solution of Maxwell’s Equation for propagation and scattering of electromagnetic waves. For huge structures (like A380) the method requires however computers with huge processing power and storage capacities. The 3D model is not easy to handle and the computation time is very long (several hours for 1 scenario). It was therefore interesting to see if simplified models (running on conventional PC’s and requiring only a few minutes to calculate a scenario) could also lead to realistic results. Used for calculations with the Method of Moments

12
A380 model Simplified models used in the simulation tools based on Physical Optics NPPM model The simplified method used in many ILS simulation tools is the Physical Optics. This asymptotic method gives an approximate solution of Maxwell’s equations and analytic solutions exist for rectangular plates as well as for cylinders. The Navaids Performance Prediction Model from Ohio University uses several rectangular plates to model the A380.

**Calculated with EMC2000 from EADS using the Method of Moments**

A380 model Predominant impact of tailfin It is well known that the major impact from an aircraft on the ILS signal comes from his tail fin. The Surface currents calculated with the Method of Moments confirms this. The red colored surfaces show the location of the highest surface current density which generate the reflected signal. Simulating only this part of the aircraft may therefore give results in accordance with the measurements.

A380 model Simplified models used in the simulation tools based on Physical Optics ATOLL and AXIS model The ILS simulation software ATOLL and AXIS are using this approximation to evaluate the interferences caused by the A380 on the ILS signal.

15
**Radiation pattern of receiving measurements Antennas**

DFS antenna DSNA antenna The radiation pattern of the receiving measurements Antenna has also an impact of the amplitude of the interference as the reflecting signal may more or less be attenuated. For the ground measurements 3 types of antennas were used. Some of the evaluated software can simulate the antenna patterns of the receiving antenna. ATOLL simulations

16
**Receiver modeling Receiver impact on measurements**

P11 bis at Toulouse airport (Forward = 2886, sideway = 178, rotation = -30°) R&S EVS200 + DSNA antenna The behavior of different receivers may lead to significant differences in the measurements for a given interference. Modeling the characteristics of the receiver is therefore required to compare simulations with measurements. On these measurements we can see a significant difference between measurements made with 2 different ILS ground receivers. Amplitude of raw dates are les than half with the ARTUS receiver compared to the EVS200. ARTUS ° turned dipole antenna

**Receiver modeling Receiver and speed impact on measurements**

P11 bis at Toulouse airport (Forward = 2886, sideway = 178, rotation = -30°) Measurement at 40 km/h Speed is also an important factor to evaluate and compare measurements with simulations. Usually one expects an increase of the measured interference with decreasing speed. The 2 curves show the opposite. The filtered interference at 40 km/h is bigger than at 13 km/h. As the direct and reflected signals are coming from different directions, it appears a frequency shift between those signals related to the Doppler effect. This Doppler shift can in some cases trigger capture effect in the receiver and lead to the mean deviation seen here at 40 km/h. To get simulations in accordance with measurements this Doppler effect should be implemented in the simulation tools. Measurement at 13 km/h

18
**Lab measurements on some receivers and associated ATOLL models**

Test setting ILS receiver Some lab measurements have been conducted by DSNA as well as by DFS to evaluate the behavior of some ILS receivers in presence of a strong reflection of the course signal. The ILS signals from two generators have been added and fed to the receivers. One signal was simulating the direct signal for a receiver on runway center line (DDM=0µA) and the second one a reflected signal. The level and the DDM from the reflected signal have been evaluated from real measurements in worst case situations. The carrier frequency of the simulated reflected signal has then be changed gradually to simulate the Doppler effect. The receiver model in ATOLL software has been adjusted to match the simulations with the measurements.
