and no major problems have been seen • System was sufficiently stable for flight testing 26 .Several coding issues were found and repaired .Site parameter data adjustments are required LGF installation procedures require alignment with the ADDs .PSP System Status: September Flight Test • Stability testing began in Mid-August .Problems are in the “expected” category.Multiple planned and unplanned restarts have occurred .

VDB coverage checks Full orbit around the VDB at 23NMI 3000’ AGL north and south radial passes .A total of 100 straight-in approaches At least five to every runway end.PSP System Status: September Flight Test • Planned flight testing . one from 20NMI 65 approaches to a selected primary test runway end • RW36L was selected because it presents the greatest potential for interrupting GPS signal at the LGF 27 .
